Throwbacks

It seems the Archives are caught in a bit of a time delay. I’m still sorting through photos and mementos from our July family trip, a good portion of which was spent in British Columbia.

For our two nights in Victoria, we hunkered down at the quirky Hotel Zed, where a Jenga tower teetered on the corner of the check in counter, their tricked-out Volkswagen shuttled us downtown, and Bob Marley was on the turn table at the listening station in the lobby. Novelty abounded, circa 1973.

A brief walk to the nearby Galloping Goose Trail, and we were gifted a stream-side stroll through tunnels bedecked in psychedelic murals, reaching.

Stretches, forwards and back, in time.
