Then we got on Vancouver Island, but we spend all our time (besides the bus rides between the ferry terminal and Victoria) in Victoria which feels like this old city with new shops, a great little quay right in the centre of town, some early Americana style city hall and firebrigade building. It had a lovely bookstore run by a hippie, with used books and new books side by side ...
