Summer in Victoria, BC

posted on Aug 19

As our long, hot summer begins it's slow transition toward the end of its season, I'm reminded about just how beautiful our city really is.  An evening spent down by Victoria's Inner Harbour, just as the sun is beginning to set and the sounds of the seagulls echo across the water, makes me realize that there is nowhere else quite so wonderful anywhere on earth.

The portent of the cooler autumn weather, the quiet places that are no longer crowded with excited visitors, and the golden tones of the late summer sun, make our city truly magical right now. Even the vibrancy of the hanging baskets is enhanced by the Midas touch of the evening sun as it splashes across the leaves and petals of their floral offerings.

This is a great time of the year to come and visit Victoria and to experience the magic of this special season. I hope we'll see you here soon!
