Walking Around Victoria

The gray skies and showers continue. There really has been little rain, but also little sun. Today I learned that Victoria has twice the sun and half the rainfall of Vancouver. They must be having a terrible June on the mainland! Despite the lack of sunshine we take a walk every day.

Flowers abound in Victoria, sometimes in the most unusual places. Everyone seems to love their gardens.

A great blue heron stops for a look.

Raincoats are the dress of the day.

Flowers and wildlife sometimes mix.

Looking for sunshine in the next few days.

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.

    It would seem that the gray and wet weather don’t interfere with your picture-taking. I hope that the sun will shine for you soon. Hi to Jean!

    Even without sunshine, Jean looks happy and I suspect you do too. Thank you for the lovely pixes.
