Well, our time in the last provincial capital city on our ten-month zoom across Canada has ended. Can you believe it? We made it!
Thunderbird Toastmasters - the club with a heart
Highlights of our stay in Victoria include participating in weekly Thunderbird Toastmasters meetings where the gift of gab is prevalent with this gregarious group of individuals.
A Taste of Italy at Paprika Bistro
Jim’s birthday including a special evening at one of Victoria’s fine dining establishments and an appearance on CBC Radio’s “All Points West” show with host Jo-Ann Roberts.

Yvonne doing the pre-warm up at CrossFit Taranis
As usual, exercise was a part of our daily lives. CrossFit Taranis is a terrific facility full of highly energetic and strong residents. Their pre-warm up and team warm up alone felt like a workout!
Jim on top of Summit Park
Jim loves the greenness of this city. He enjoyed many opportunities to play with nature, whether zooming around lakes or visiting the harbour.
In every city, we have enjoyed discovering public art, including beautiful wall murals. This city was no different, and seeing one of Jim’s favourites involved a hike up a hill.
Mike Sampson and Jim Moffat
We attended a house concert at our new friend Eric’s house. Jim Moffat and Mike Sampson entertained us locals and rocked the neighbourhood with their great music and funny stories.
There are lots more interesting tales about this city to share in the book Zooming across Canada.
