Merry Christmas from Victoria




On December 16th, 2007, when most of northern North America was being inundated by huge amounts of snow, this is what it was like here in Victoria. Every year I take a photo as close to Christmas as I can and use it as my e-mail Christmas card to show family and friends in the East and in Europe and South Africa why I now live here. This photo of downtown Victoria was taken from Mt. Tolmie, one of two in-town "mountains".

Don't be fooled by my use of "Christmas". It's just a more common way of saying Winter Solstice. And it's true, we've turned the corner - the days are getting longer (but weather-wise, who knows what still awaits us during the next 10 weeks or so).
