Looking West

On Saturday we had a look at the view from Walbran Park looking east. Here, from practically the same viewpoint, is the view looking up the west coast of Vancouver Island.

The Chinese Public School on Fisgard Street

This historic building is so photogenic you almost can't help yourself on passing it. Fun fact:it was designed by Scottish architect David C. Frame. Lots more interesting here.

Walbran Park

When I posted yesterday's photo of the Blacktail deer I mentioned that I was in Walbran Park for the view. And it is a very nice view, even on an overcast day like Friday. Here we are looking at MacNeil Bay on the eastern side of Vancouver Island.

Young Buck

I took a spin up to Walbran Park this afternoon for the view and was rewarded by being able to spend a pleasant half-hour with this young Blacktail buck. Though he kept a wary eye on me he allowed me to come quite close. As you can see in the photo to the left, I'm not the only one who is fond of Camas Lilies.

Fleming Beach

On the western side of Macaulay Point is a small area known as Fleming Beach. It's a small bay protected by a breakwater and used as a boat launch by sport fishermen.
