a popular spot for happy dogs
and their people to walk

Hello, friends. I thought you might enjoy making a day trip to Victoria, B.C., poised on the southern tip of Vancouver Island, along the ocean. It is a beautiful small city with a distinctly English flavour. You can walk along the harbour and up Government Street, and pretend you are in Olde England, with all the tea shops and the old architecture of its many historic buildings. It is quite lovely. It boasts a very mild climate and is abloom with flowers year-round.

I am pinch-hitting for Mary today. We had another great week at Poets United, with another good one coming up.  On Monday, we are featuring a long-time member of Poets United, who writes the most wonderful poetry. You wont want to miss her, so do stop by. If you want to work ahead,     Sumana's prompt for Midweek Motif will be:  Summer! And Rosemary always has something interesting and thought-provoking on Friday.

Let's dive into reading poetry this Sunday morning. Add your link, and be sure to visit the other poets in the spirit of reciprocity. Thank you for being here and for your participation - we wouldn't be here without you!

  15. Yes, Victoria is a treasure. If I had to live in a city, which, thankfully, I do not, it is the one city I could happily live in. Who knows? By the time I need a nursing home, I could do no better!
