Granted, Cal wears shorts even in the snow, but it is gorgeous weather right now in Victoria! Clear and sunny, all I needed was a sweatshirt and my book as I enjoyed sitting out at the green and blooming Beacon Hill Park today. The Rhododendrums are out, the grass is lush, and I felt truly blessed again to live in this beautiful city of Victoria (especially while the rest of the country is neck deep in winter!) We’ve got room available at the local bed and breakfasts (see www.bestbnbvictoria.com), and flights out to see us are quite a bargain right now. Who needs Hawaii? You’ve got Victoria!
