Travel Pictures of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada

      Victoria is the capital city of British Columbia. I love this city as a place to live and soon to enjoy my retirement. The climate, weather, environment, and most of all, the people is the defining characteristic of this beautiful city. These photos in Downtown Victoria and some areas in Esquimalt are taken during spring time. I started my journey from Workpoint, CFB Esquimalt then walk on the West Bay Waterway leading to the Johnson Bridge. After crossing the bridge, I pictured the Market Square and began to photograph the Downtown tourist attractions around. After taking a photo of the Save-on-Foods Memorial, I felt hungry and stop by Chinatown for my lunch. After lunch I finished all the surrounding attractions all the way to the Legislative Buildings, Beacon Hill Park, and on the Fisherman's Wharf. I concluded my journey by taking the Waterfront Way to Downtown Victoria and went home using the Westsong Way then to West Bay Waterway and back to Workpoint, NOTC Venture, CFB Esquimalt.
