Here is how I spent part of my morning yesterday. I went downtown to pick up a couple of magazines I'd had on hold at Chapters, popped into a little thrift shop I'd never been to before and found a pretty lace shirt for $2, and then wandered round the city for a little bit taking photos.
It was about 9.30, and there was hardly anyone out yet, so it was a perfect time to take some photos. I got shouted at by a group of guys outside McDonalds, had an old lady tell me I have "nice legs", and was nearly shat on by a seagull. But, overall, it was still a decent trip, haha.
In this one you can see the harbour at the end of the street, I'll always love living near the water, and if I ever move away I know I'll surely miss it.
This is Government St. It's one of the prettiest in Victoria, I think, and it's home to one of my favourite book shops ever!
This is Bard and Banker at the corner of Government and Fort. It's a Scottish pub and, I think, easily one of the most beautiful buildings in downtown Victoria.
This photo and the next are of a little alley which connects Government and Broad. And at the Broad St. end of the alley there's a little kitchen shop which is absolutely adorable.
This is Victoria's City Hall on Douglas St. I love this building, too. Although, I think it looked nicer before it was painted. But I assume that was done to help keep the bricks it's built out of in place better as it's quite old.
And finally a photo of Broad St., home to several shops of all sorts, and also one of Victoria's television stations, which is directly to the right in the photo below.
I'll try and post a photo of the lace shirt I bought, it's quite big but I think I can either wear it with a belt or take it in a bit. We'll see!
