A few years ago, I took one of my favorite photos of the Victoria, B.C. harbor in the rain. This was a sunny, but windy day, and I took a more expansive photo from a different perspective. Vancouver Island is turning out to be one of my favorite places. We were interested to see people buying palm trees and banana trees at a local Costco store, so we assume that either the weather is mild enough for these plants or a lot of them are grown indoors. It is an interesting place and very beautiful.
