Let me take you on a quick trip to downtown Victoria

Come join me on a little Sunday evening tour of my hometown, Victoria BC. My hair's a little messed up, but don't mind that. Let's go!

I hear it's sunny and warm in California. Not so in Victoria – we've got typical rainforest weather: cold, wet, and gray, just how we like it. This sidewalk will take us to our bus stop on Quadra St:

The #6 bus will bring us to downtown Victoria for $1.75 CDN. Our buses are made in the UK by the Dennis company.

This is one of my favorite spots on earth – St. Andrew's Cathedral in downtown Victoria. Beautiful vaulted ceilings and lots of stained glass, surprisingly mixed with elements of west coast native art.

After Mass, we step outside into the cool night air. It's 6pm and most shops are closed. McDonald's is, of course, still open.

In 20 minutes, our bus arrives. A handful of people, mostly students, climb onboard.

And we're back where we started. A streetlamp lights our way in the dark.

Why not post some narrated pics of a day in your life? Post them to your blog and let me know.
