Day one in Victoria BC on the west coast of British Columbia. I awaken on a futon in my Dad’s living room in Cook Street Village. This will be my base camp for the next two weeks in the capital region. Let’s start with amble downtown to see what we will see.
Basecamp for my Victoria leg of the journey. The two prints flanking the centre were created by my Dad's friend, and Haida artist, Alvin Child
The Wall outside of St.Annes Academy
Flowers are out and about, the rain does not dampen their spirits
A lady bugged monkey puzzle!
The blossoms flourish on many trees on many streets
Douglas Street Crossing
There are a plethora of doors and types to be seen about a city.. here's one of them
Glass reflections and wooden spider webs
This is one of my favourite buildings in Victoria
There are smatterings of old buildings about town. Some get tapped for reinvigoration. Others descend never to rise again.

When catching up with old friends and talking about vision, strengths, passions, and awesomeness, it helps to have honking big cookies
No way I can pick a favorite shot from this bunch! LOVE the architectural studies, and that blue door is spectacular! Vancouver Island is truly happy to have you back, Jordan, even if it is for a short stay.
Thank you so very much my friend! 😀 That blue door looks to have seen many stories pass its way! I think you’ll enjoy tomorrow’s post when I take a crack at the Provinical Legislature at dusk 😉 (It’ll auto-post as tomorrow I leave Nanaimo and head towards Campbell River 🙂 )
Great job on the images – I love them all! You’ve done a wonderful job of capturing some of the essence of my old home town. Enjoyed the post very much.
Thank you very much! 😀 It’s such a great town! There’ll be more images from my Vic-ventures to come yet! Those were just from my Day 1 there 😀
