Hey, James Bay!

So here's a little (and I do mean little) bit about where we're living:
Sorry it's so small, but it's really hard to find a good picture of James Bay, the oldest section of Victoria. We're in the tallest building around, though not on the top floor (but more than sufficiently high up for a great view!).

As you can barely make out in the picture, we are halfway between the Inner Harbour and the ocean. We're facing north (meaning overlooking the harbour), so we have a great view of the city and of the island's mountains. In the picture, you can see that across the Strait of Juan De Fuca (aka the ocean) are the Olympic Mountains of Washington state.

I have to admit, I blinked when I saw your title for this entry. I must confess ignorance of Victoria's geography, so when I saw "James Bay", I immediately thought of the appendage dangling off of Hudson's Bay bum, between Ontario and Quebec!

That would be a heck of a commute to Victoria! Glad I was wrong!

BTW, looks like a nice block of flats. :D
