The Big Weekend

Victoria Day, the first long weekend of the summer season, is celebrated all over Canada but with special vigor here in Queen Victoria's namesake city. It started on Friday, when I took this iconic photo of Victoria's Inner Harbour and Causeway with the Fairmont Empress Hotel on the left and the Legislative Assembly Buildings on the right. Monday's Victoria Day Parade (See Fern's photos below) had lots of marching bands but many of them arrive on Friday and take turns giving concerts from the steps of the legislature. We'll have a look at them tomorrow.

Your shots of the inner harbour always impress. This one's beautiful.

While in Victoria the last few days, I never got a chance to visit the inner harbour.
