Our weather lately has lovely – clear crisp days and cold starlit nights. And, the daytime temperature are starting to be warmer; I have even seen a few folk wearing bare feet in flip flops the last few days. I’ve been enjoying some evening walks as well as early morning ones, and caught this gorgeous sunset a few nights ago.

I’ve been walking for about an hour a few mornings each week. I love the light and the cool, and the way the air smells. Here are a couple snaps from yesterday.

With all the trees in full leaf and the roses beginning to bloom, it feels like Victoria is ready for another tourist season. The harbour is bustling with boats and the cruise ships are back in full force. Wishing everyone a happy summer of travel!

Our Inner Harbour is truly multi-use with the Coho car ferry to Port Angeles, float plane service to Vancouver and other BC locations, the Victoria Clipper high-speed ferry to Seattle as well as the harbour ferries, yachts and sail boats, and even recreational users like these kayakers.

Around its edges one can find many attractions and restaurants.

The little harbour ferries connect pedestrians with many points around the city.
