Which of course got me to thinking about the origins of Canada. It’s good to do that once in a while you know? Thinking of the rivalries between the French and English, the First nation peoples, the Metis and the settlers. How we finally managed to come together as a country, despite all our differences and without a major civil war. Really big battles yes, major civil war no.
Which got me to thinking about Queen Victoria.
She was the queen when Canada became a country. She was known as a strong advocate for Canada as a confederacy. She never visited Canada, but her name is spread far and wide across our beloved land. You could learn more about Queen Victoria here.
Which of course led to be think about Victoria, which is is the capital city of British Columbia and is located on Vancouver Island. One day I would like to travel all the way out west with my lad, I’ve been out there to visit my sister but that was more to visit her and less to sight see. 🙂 It would be neat to visit Butchart Gardens and other tourist traps of Victoria, BC.
And IN British Columbia you can find a small bird called the Hutton’s Vireo. You can learn more about the bird here. 🙂
Queen Victoria to Victoria to Vancouver to a small Vireo.
