I had an amazing walk early yesterday morning down to the waterfront at the edge of downtown. The sky was threatening and the forecast was for possible thunder storms through the day. I love walking in the morning; the air is so fresh.

A grey day at the harbour. The famous Victoria flower baskets are beginning to wain, but the "Welcome to Victoria" red flower beds along the lower causeway are still vibrant and inviting.

This was the view from the walkway along Dallas Drive, looking west towards Sooke. Beautiful morning sky. The cruise ship docked on the right was huge!

As I turned to head back, I saw this. I hadn't noticed it building behind me as I walked. Just after I took this pic, struck the first lightening and rolling thunder.
