These past few days, from May 27 through to June 2, 2013 has been Bike to Work Week, sponsored by the University of Victoria, CTV, C-Fax 1070, the Times-Colonist and many more community sponsors.    What better (and inexpensive) way to get in shape in the Greater Victoria area than cycling, especially when the sun is out and the Lochside and Galloping Goose Trail provides great safe cycling for every age group.   Today and tomorrow is the Oak Bay Tea Party, with fun for everyone right on the beach! Besides these events there are many more activities scheduled for Victoria during the next few months - Come and visit our beautiful city this summer! Cheers!

Wordless, BC Legislative Assembly Victoria It almost reads like a contradictions in terms, it does seems hard to imagine any legislature to be wordless, so We have added a few. As part of this weekends Be A Tourist In Your Own Hometown, both Linda and I have been visiting many of the Down Town Attractions, and we thought is would be appropriate to show you (as our first Report) what we experienced and we hope you enjoy our short Picture Tour of the BC Legislature Assembly or often also referred to as the BC Parliament Buildings, we here in Victoria are very proud of these stunning buildings and its beautiful design and interior.

Fifty years in business is quite an accomplishment. However, when the 50th was celebrated back in 1908, that's really something! Victoria's first newspaper, The Colonist began in 1858. Today, the paper is still in print however featuring a slightly different name: The Times Colonist.   In 1908, the population of Victoria was about 25,000 and by 1911 was 31,000. For $2,100  a nice 5-room cottage could be purchased. Want to build? A lot could be had for $350!         For more information on the history of Victoria and archives of the early newspaper, click on this link.   Wishing all a great weekend!

Who is This Person and Why are They Important? | Back to School Series Okay, so I know in my last post, I said tune back in next week for my next statue post, well next week came early.  I decided that because there currently is not an unanswered post in one of my favorite groups at ActiveRain: Statues of the World, that I would go ahead and post this one.  Also because this is a part of my back to school series, we need to keep those brains revved up even over the weekend. Who is This Person, What City, State, Province, or Country is it in?  Like Vegas Bob likes to say, here is a photo of a statue that I took a year or so ago and I can't remember who this person is and I need a little help. So please tell me Who the person in this statue is, what city, state, province or country it is ...

The City of Victoria has recently erected a bronze statue of the Service Man Returning Home. As you can see from the picture, it depicts a uniformed military person down on one knee receiving his young daughter into his arms. The family dog, Fido, is there as well. The statue is proudly displayed in Victoria's Harbour.

The 348 foot Russian Naval Training Ship, Pallada is in town and is docked at the foot of Bastion Street in Victoria's quaint little harbour. Click here to see this ship under partial sail. Click here to see this ship under full sail. The Pallada was built in 1989 in Gdansk, Poland. It has spent 22 years sailing the seas of the world and has covered approximately 520,000 nautical miles. The ship has called at more than 100 ports in 35 countries. The three masted vessel is considered a 'tall ship' for obvious reasons. The sailors on board were very friendly. Some spoke English. Some were shy. The Pallada has been entered into the Guiness Book of World Records for being the fastest sailing ship at speeds of up to 18.7 knots under full sail. The Pallada was open to visitors both yesterday ...
