The 4th Annual Victoria Tweed Ride was held last sunday, and what a lovely day it was! The ride itself was quite long this year, beginning at the St Ann’s Academy grounds downtown and finishing at a perfect picnic spot at Esquimalt Gorge Park. More than 200 riders enjoyed an ideal day out.
The late summer morning light was so lovely the other day, I was inspired to take these shots of some of our heritage architecture.
On tuesday, we had the most incredible rain storm, or storms, as there was a spectacular one in the afternoon with thunder and lightening, plus a bonus evening downpour of epic proportions. I did not capture these, but instead, the gathering clouds and lead up. We had a lovely morning walk and were almost home when the first gentle drops began to fall. These were taken at the beach on Dallas Road, just below Beacon Hill Park:
We were privileged to sit atop some warm rocks and watch a beautiful sunset a few nights ago. Peacock Hill Park is a small, rocky outcrop in the District of Saanich, about a 40-minute walk from downtown Victoria.
