The weather was…perfect…Perfectly hot. We waited until Sunday when a light, wispy cloud cover provided some breaks to the 30 degree temps. It was stil hot. But no worries…there’s a mister that’ll help your. No, not that guy with the Super-soaker — but he’ll do the trick. There’s a great wall of light mist that you can casually walk up to and it’ll cool you off for a few minutes. Then you can come back, or hit the water fill-up station.
The music festival is a colourful event, to say the least. From the hats and t-shirts that have been sitting top shelf of the closet, waiting for The Music Festival, to beach-ballls, Super-soakers, pink cowboy hats and of course — the bands. They’re the most colourful expression in my books. Pouring their talents out on the stage for the crowds of 10,000 to grab a glass-full. Sunday’s evening line-up included Kongos, Loverboy (Wallflowers — cancelled), Mother Mother and Our Lady Peace.
Have you ever just wished for…Nothing?
- No noise?
- No to-do list?
- No dinner to make?
- No aches and pains?
- No texts?
Just pure relaxation. The new Float House – Victoria can give you 90-minutes of nothing.
I’d like to introduce to you to a local performer that’s been busking on the streets of Victoria, making videos, singing and dancing on YouTube and at benefits and parties around Victoria for a few years — despite the fact that he’s just 16-years old.
His name is Tristan Thompson and he’s having a blast making a go of it in the music biz these days…There’s an album called Here For You, performances, a YouTube channel — while he’s still just a kid like any other in Victoria that found something he really likes to do.
Meet, Tristan Thompson:
Summer! Yes! It’s finally here! We’ve been wishing it would be here for…well since September, really. In my house, our #1 favourite summer activity is swimming! Lakes, rivers, ocean, outdoor pools…wherever we can find a watering-hole. It’s not summer until we’re leaping into a fresh body of water.
While you can enjoy beaches all over the island and Greater Victoria, once in a while there’s a spike in some nasty bug in the water — that’ll provoke a warning from VIHA and the CRD. Right now, there are warnings for Beaver Lake and a section of Cordova Bay Beach, so don’t be dipping in there until it’s clear.
We’ve officially hit the sweet spot in the year…Summer Solstice hits us Saturday, June 21st! It’s the first day of summer, the longest day of the year!
So why not welcome this day with a whole lot of fresh air? If you’ve got kids, you’re all too familiar with the balance between fresh air and outdoor play with the lure of those incredibly exciting video games, iPads and round the clock choices of kids programming on TV.
The Victoria Goddess Run presented by Ocean 98.5 is is happening this Sunday, June 1st and here’s all the road closures in Langford you can expect.
