Happy Birthday, Canada

July 1, 2012

July 1, 2012 – Canada is 145 years old

Victoria, the capital of  British Columbia and the weather were in a holiday mood

Inner Harbour and the Provincial Parliament Buildings 

leaping dolphins






 bees in the Empress Hotel Gardens






buskers, yachts




and harbour ferries







the Irish Linen Shop dressed in red and white


and at the end of the day, a bison burger and a Guinness

      Neki – the shop itself is designated a heritage building and is kept exactly as it was in the ’30s. The owner does the buying personally in Ireland, no drooling allowed!
      Myra – that was our first day of summer weather and winter will be here soon enough.

    Looks like a lotta fun, Jean! More fun than this chilly winter weather downunder.
