View Royal

Greater Victoria is a collection of independent cities and municipalities, one of which is View Royal, west of Esquimalt. I've not posted much about View Royal before because when I leave the city I am usually heading further away and drive right through View Royal without stopping. Last week I decided to remedy this and explore a bit. Much of View Royal lies just above the shoreline of Esquimalt Harbour. The harbour is heavily indented with many headlands and small bays such as pictured here. Just above this viewpoint is an information plaque that says this little bay was used by early mariners as a place to collect fresh water for use on their ships. The view is lovely but in reality it is enhanced by the sounds of the little creek nearby that still empties into the bay.
