10 11 2012
Esquimail, BC

Pronounced ESK WHY MALT this modest urbanity on the southeast end of Vancouver Islandis as close to sailing heaven as a person is likely to come.

Walking into Victoria today I sat for a while and watched seaplanes land and takeoff while a seal kept me company six feet off the shoreline.  Despite the five degree temperatures eight stalwarts of the salt headed out of the protected waters of the bay on which our daughter, a sub lieutenant in the navy, lives.

Here is what I saw on my mile long walk into the "big" city of Victoria. These pictures are all taken within one hundred metres of our daughter's condo.  When we get back to North America there is a whole world see from the deck of our boat.
