Secret Beaches of Greater Victoria
Secret Beaches of Greater Victoria: View Royal to Sidney | Theo Dombrowski
3 posts
Secret Beaches of Greater Victoria is a comprehensive review of nearly 100 beaches on the Saanich Peninsula and in the Greater Victoria area. While some of these are well used by people living nearby, many are virtually impossible to find without combing through official maps and back-road guides. Even the seemingly well-known shoreline from Oak Bay to Beacon Hill hides its own tiny pocket beaches and obscure coves. Just as important as finding these spots is knowing what to expect. Thus each location is accompanied by detailed information that any beach explorer should know before setting out. Is the beach a few level steps from a vehicle or down a high, steep bank? Is the beach suitable for children? Large groups? Kayakers? All of these questions and many more are answered in this book, which includes Theos hand-drawn maps, photographs and artwork. Take a few steps off a grassy area and enter a world of miniature reefs and islets (Lansdowne Road) Watch boats navigating Enterprise Channel from a hidden headland (Radcliffe Lane) Relax on an expanse of beautiful white sand (Gonzales Beach) Explore a beach where you can see low-tide critters like anemones, starfish and crabs (Beaufort Road, Sidney) Refresh your pleasure in the shore and head out to picnic, play, launch kayaks, watch winter storms or just enjoy the waves.

Couldn‘t find Seaside Walks in the data base. Went downtown for the first time since March 2020. Had to stop by Russell Books to buy a book and some cute cards. The Inner Harbour hasn‘t changed much and The Empress‘s magnolia is in bloom.

Nute Looks like it was a lovely day spent out in the open air!🙂 2mo

I had a lovely day at the beach yesterday with my best friend and read another 100 pages of #NothingButSky. I‘m not that impressed so far. Today I‘m back at my university town, worked in the library and bought Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates.

#readjanuary #setinmycity. Wow, this book is in The Litsy database 👍I moved to Victoria at the turn of the century. The weather here is the mildest in Canada, we're complaining when it's -5 C, I used to live in Penticton and -20 C was a normal January temperature. 🌴

BookishTrish Victoria is a very special place. What a gorgeous place to live. 5y

Dragon Thanks @BookishTrish @RealLifeReading @Hobbinol - i like Victoria 's small city feel. There are some very lovely spots 😀 5y
Dragon Thanks @syasutake Did you come over on the Coho? If so ,you probably saw the inner harbour and the venerable Empress Hotel ? 5y
syasutake I think it might have been the Coho, but I'm not certain. This was in 1998. We ate lunch at a place called The Blue Carrot and walked through a lovely public park with a petting farm. I remember a lot of cute goats. :) 5y
Dragon Thanks @syasutake the park and the goats 🐐 are still there but The Blue Carrot is not . 🐉 5y
syasutake Aww the goats were adorable. I hope we can visit there again someday. It must be a nice place to live. 5y
Dragon Thanks @syasutake I quite like it. A bit British and multicultural as well- lots of parks and beaches- great restaurants- not a bad place to live 😀 5y
