VICTORIA - Summer in the Capital

3 posts in this topic

In the spring of 1778 Captain James Cook, R.N., became the first known European to set foot on what is now British Columbia. Permanent European settlement, long delayed, was brought about by the gradual overland penetration of the fur trade companies towards the Pacific Coast. On March 13, 1843, Chief Factor of the Hudson's Bay Company James Douglas, accompanied by the pioneer Roman Catholic missionary Father J.B.Z. Bolduc, anchored off Clover Point in the "Beaver." The next day he selected the site for Fort Victoria.

Today, Victoria is the capital of BC.

You captured some of the sunshine that wouldn't quit from last summer. The Inner Harbour is really something special, sometimes it takes photos from visitors to remind me of this. Thanks for the great shots HK.
