    Victoria BC - Pictures

    Here are some pictures fropm my recent trip to Victoria

    The start or the end of the TransCanada Highway, depends on which way you are going



    The Beach





    Typical residents of Victoria, the elderly



    Oceanfront houses, anywhere else these would have been torn down years ago and mansions built



    The Inner Harbour




    Fishermans Wharf

    Houseboats as housing, and these are not cheap





    Victoria loves its alleys

    FanTan Alley





    Totem Poles are everywhere

    It may be that I am just naive, but I thought that Canada used Km’s and not Miles...

    I expect this was erected before we embraced the metric system and no one has bothered to change it, plus "mile 0" is more poetic.
