This town has a totem pole trail through town which you can follow. Each totem has a sign which explains the carvings and their meanings. I spent about an hour walking around the town.

 

Then I saw a sign on a shop window which was unique.

I drove on to Victoria and visited my old neighbourhood. The house I grew up in has gone but there were other landmarks from my childhood that I saw and remembered. I am staying with a friend here in Victoria and catching up with friends I haven't seen for years. I will do some architectural photography here as well as some seascapes and nature. The weather has been warm and sunny - ISO 400 F8 @ 125th. Not as bright and glary as Australia!
