Victoria, BC, Canada – Walking around with Jen (Expat Traveller) etc

I can’t believe it’s more than 3 Months since we met
Jen, P and Cammie in Victoria at Vancouver Island.
Face to face for the first time.
We miss them all and Victoria.
Just see the Photos and you’ll understand why.

Before the arrival of the Europeans in the late 1700s, the Victoria area was home to several communities of Coast Salish peoples, including the Songish (Songhees). Coast Salish refers to First Nation or Native American cultures who inhabited areas in British Columbia and Washington state. Up right you see a Totem, that is now dived in 3 pieces. At a holy ground for the Songhees. In respect of this native nation please read.

I know you had a great time in Victoria – you were with friends and the city is so beautiful and friendly. We went there 3 times but it has been a while now and I wish we could go back soon.
Thanks for coming to my blog and commenting. I have not been to Michigan – well I went there after I arrived in the US but that was in the 1960s! What part of Michigan will you visit?

I know you had a wonderful time in Victoria, Tor. I never made it to that city but I DID make it to Ucluelet on the west side of Vancouver Island. What a place to live!
