Victoria is Canada's best kept secret. With the Pacific Ocean hugging all of the city, its lucky inhabitants have access to sandy beaches, incredible wildlife, a thriving harbour, seaside walks and glorious vistas of the Olympic Mountains in nearby Washington State. The temperate climate allows us to grow plants that can't be grown anywhere else in this icy, snowy country of ours. Spring is gradual and so beautiful, as the blossoming trees and flowers burst with colour and scent all over the city. Thanks for adopting me, Vic!
