Victoria, BC and Beyond – fabulous place to visit
My home is on the southernmost tip of Vancouver Island in a neighbourhood of the city of #victoriabc called James Bay. It is one of the oldest residential areas in the Pacific Northwest with charming heritage homes preserved and still intact. It is a vibrant and diverse neighbourhood with stunning waterfront and Fisherman’s Wharf, a collection of floating houses and restaurants.
The Salish people roamed this area for centuries prior to the arrival of Europeans. Together they lived in Big Houses surviving on fish, carving totem poles, ceremonial masks and canoes, and weaving incredible blankets and tapestries. You can see a wonderful collection of First Nation culture in the Royal BC Museum in Victoria’s Inner Harbour. Around the museum grounds you’ll find a display of Totem Poles created in 1941, in Thunderbird Park.
