Our friend Annie is embarking on a whole new life. We spent part of the day yesterday celebrating in the sun: watching a Flamenco performance at the Victoria Flamenco Festival, fabric shopping at Gala Fabrics, and enjoying iced Maple Maccha Lattes at JagaSilk. The daifuku was delicious and my favourite latte was even better iced.



Victoria has a lot of festivals all through the summer. July had Jazz, Busker’s and Ska Festivals as well as several other food and music events. In August we’ve already had the Dragonboat Festival, Indian Festival (Mela), Fibrations Celebration of Fibre Artists and Flamenco Festival, with the Accordion festival in full swing this week and Fringe coming up next week. September hosts two of our biggest festivals The Great Canadian Beer Fest, September 6 and 7, and Rifflandia Music Festival September 12–15. Here are some pics I shot this weekend: a couple artsy shots from the Flamenco Fest and some good shots of the Lion Dance which was presented yesterday in my neighbourhood by the Wong Sheung Hung Fat Kung Fu Club to mark the anniversary of the Chinese Freemasons.
