Yesterday, we visited the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria. They have a small but beautiful garden where I sat for a few minutes enjoying the late afternoon light. The garden includes a Meiji era Shinto shrine.

Originally designed by Isaburo Kishida in 1907 and left to decay after Japanese internment in the 40s, this beautiful Japanese Garden at Esquimalt Gorge Park has been brought back to life by the vision of the Township of Esquimalt and the expertise of Greenfield Design of Victoria. Tomorrow, Saturday 8 September, Esquimalt holds its Centennial Community Celebration at the park. Michael and Sean Greenfield will be there to talk about the garden. There will be no parking on sight so walk, bus, ride or harbour ferry to this fun community event.
