Victoria's 2010 Cruise Ship began this week!
Today's ship: NCL's Norwegian Pearl in the middle of her pirouette before backing up to the pier...

Nice ride...

Saw this on my way to work this morning. The building in the background is the BC Ferries head office.

Deja Vu, I'm working on this building again...

Just a little touch up on something that wasn't done last year. I'm working by myself on this one, but that's kind of a nice change. At least I know the building!

These blossoms look pretty and have a cool "pink snow" effect when they fall, but they're a pain in the ass when you're trying to paint on a windy day...

*This photo was actually taken 2 years ago to the day, but because it was so windy today I could not get a decent shot. These trees look the same every spring.

Tankless toilet...

Our toilet has not been flushing properly lately, so we had a plumber called in to have a look. The problem was minor, but involved draining and removing the tank.
Here's the funny part: When the plumber went to put the tank back on, it cracked beyond repair. There were no spare tanks around, so we ended up with a new toilet!

The sign in the picture matches today's date...

Sign reads: "Bridge Luncheon Apr 20 10-3 Gardiner Hall"
The sign wasn't even my subject when I took this photo. I just think this is a cool oak tree that I found in Oak Bay. Since Garry Oaks are protected trees, city engineers had to improvise.

It's rare to see a speed limit sign that doesn't end with a 5 or a 0...

Too bad some punk kid tagged it. Happens a lot in this city.
