Visul canadian 9. Marina Oak Bay, Victoria / Canadian dream 9. Marina Oak Bay, Victoria

On my first day in Victoria, Canada my first walk was to the marina. I like marinas and I always visit them. On my way I saw a lot of very nice houses. Personally, I would live in any of them. You?

Oak Bay Marina offered a large view to the Juan de Fuca straight. A lighthouse, birds, small rocky uninhabited islets, round heads of seals. I have been lucky enough to see a seal near the shore and I photographed it!


In prima zi cand am ajuns in Canada, la Victoria, primul meu drum a fost la mare, la marina. “Marina”, cuvant provenit din latina, desemneaza tarmul. Tehnic vorbind, o marina este un bazin special amenajat pentru a primi iahturi si barci mici, oferind diverse facilitati pentru acestea. Imi plac barcile si de aceea vizitez o marina de cate ori am prilejul.

Drumul pana la marina, facut pe jos, m-a purtat printre case care de care mai cochete si mai atragatoare. Personal, as sta in oricare dintre ele. Voi pe care ati alege-o?
In marina, am avut o priveliste larga spre stramtoarea Juan de Fuca. Un far, mici insule nelocuite, langa care se itesc capete de foci, pasari si desigur, multe barci. Tipetele pescarusilor ne-au insotit in aceasta plimbare. Undeva, la poalele unor stanci am putut chiar vedea si fotografia mai de aproape, o foca.

Acolo, deasupra plajei de langa marina, am vazut si ce inseamna conceptul de “vila cu plaja privata”….

Thank you for the visit, Helma. Nature in Canada is beautiful, indeed. Victoria, the capital of British Columbia, especially this part, is like a resort: splendid villas and beautiful flowers everywhere.
