"Johnson street bridge" ( the blue bridge) The bridge no longer exists  after  94 years of service.  The Johnson Street Bridge was designed under the direction of Mr. F. M. Preston, City Engineer in 1920. The Strauss Bascule Bridge Company, which held the patents on the design, prepared the plans for the 45 m  bascule spans and the operating machinery. The superstructure of the bridge was fabricated in Walkerville, Ontario of 100 tons of steel. The sub-structure was built by the City of Victoria Engineering Department and required 9,144 cubic metres  of concrete. The bridge was completed at a cost of $918,000 and opened in January 1924. The bridge originally had street car rails running down the center of the road span, but they were never used, and were removed a few years later. In 1966, the wood deck was replaced with steel grid, as rainwater absorbed by the deck unbalanced the bridge, straining the lifting gear. In 1979, extensive repairs were made to the superstructure, which had become severely corroded. Following these repairs, the bridge was painted blue. The paint was selected because the oxides of its pigment are the same colour as the paint so that little fading of the colour occurs. The City of Victoria had used the same blue paint for the lamp standards throughout the city.  The new bridge open March 31, 2018 . The cost over 105 million . comments appreciated and welcomed. ink59.com (limited prints available) #victoria_city_canada #explorevictoria #victoriahype #victoriabuzz #travelvictoria #explorevancouverisland #amazingvancouverisland #victorianews #prismphotocontest #canadawonderful #wonderfulvancouverisland #pocket_canada #imagesofcanada #canadaday #sharevi #landscapesofcanada #hellobc #getoutthere #explorebc #unlimitedcanada #canoncanada #instagood #shutterbugpix #photographyworld #globalcapture #insta_worldz #canada_true

“Its a beautiful thing to have lungs that allow you to breath fresh air and legs that allow you to climb the tallest mountains. & It’s a shame that we don’t realize that that’s enough.”
At my “Happy Place”!! Taking a few days off to relax & rejuvenate. Oh, how I love the sun & lake ☀️
Do you have a friend or friends like this?❤️Had one of my lovely friends come to #explorebc with me from Manitoba. It was so nice to catch up and reminisce about the ridiculous things we did together. We definitely made some great new memories this time!

{magnolia tree} Late fall early winter, these fuzzy pods appear on our Magnolia tree. I always thought they were the buds for the amazing flowers that bloom in Spring, because to be honest, I don't usually pay much attention to this tree once the harsh spring rain pelts down and ruins all the blooms. I'm always so sad when that happens. This year, as I was walking past, I noticed the bright, spring green leaves bursting from the pods and all the little fuzzies on the ground. 📽 This little tiny film has no filter and the sound is on even if the non nature sounds are so loud because I hope it takes you to this exact moment, looking up through the trees with the sun making shadows through the leaves, and the planes overhead. Ahhhhhhh Summer is on its way Check out stories for more moments in nature🌱

One of the best moments of this season was finally dropping into the Pencil Chute on Mt. Currie. After years upon years of staring up at the striking face from the bottom, to ski the iconic line in phenomenal conditions, with a stellar crew, at the end of a classic link-up was just top notch. . @epilog_skis @dissentlabs. . #skipemberton #pemberdise #mtcurrie #pencilchute #explorebc
The first of two classic couloirs on the day: the Pura Vida, off a sub peak of Hibachi, back behind Mt Currie. Here, @blizzardofoz_ shows us why we all wish we were actually surfers. We couldn’t believe how good the snow was, all the way out to the end of the couloir—where everything promptly went to shit. Luckily, we had to go up, not down, to get up on top of Mt Currie for our next lap down. . #skipemberton #PuraVidaCouloir #surftheearth #exploreBC #pemberdise
This winter was full of incredible days, but this shot is from one of my favourite days ever (February). Here, @jordynor shows our pilot how to fly up and over Mt Currie to a sub peak of Hibachi. We skied a classic link up of two phenomenal couloirs, back into Pemberton. After years of staring up at Mt Currie, we couldn’t contain our excitement that we’d be dropping in later that day!

🍁 Fall Reflection 🍂 ➖ 📍 Whistler, Canada 🇨🇦 #bcisbeautiful ➖ 📷 @tvardi
Every time I go to the coast I’m reminded of much it is a sensory experience: the rumble of waves sucking gravel back out into the pacific, the smell of salt water, salad, cedar and seaweed inhaled with every breath, the subtle mental effort it takes to balance as you walk across driftwood and shifting sands. You don’t just see the coast. You sense it. Photo 📍: Sandcut Beach in the traditional territory of the T’Sou-ke First Nation.
Some of the things that I love about sunshine is it helps me get out into nature and enjoy its magnificent and simple beauty and who can forget about all the buds that are popping up! 🌱🌸🌞 I thought it would be a prefect time to showcase my cake design in its basic form. #SimpleBeauty 🇨🇦🌹 Enjoy the sunshine all! . . . #RusticRoseBakeshop #Cake #Birthday #Celebrate #Okanagan #Canadian #ExploreBC #ExploreCanada #Bakery #Penticton #Sandals #Sunshine #PeachCity #Spring #Dessert #Delish #Simple #BeautifulBritishColumbia #Natural #Enjoy #Nature

Last photo from the lower falls trail. And another reason for you to visit the Golden Ears Provincial Park. I don't think there's any other trail in the region as easy as the lower falls trail and offering so many incredible views. This is a good spot to witness the power of the Gold Creek. As you approach this location, be cautious, as rocks can be very slippery. A dip here probably means a "one-way trip" to the waterfalls. Next time I should bring a ND filter.

Edmonton is our home base, and where most of our final production goes down. Stitching on labels and patches, printing, and embroidery happen here. Also, our pillows are made by hand in town. Last but certainly not least, our mighty pennants are made in Vancouver. Anything that we didn't mention on here is something that we're working toward manufacturing in Canada as we are able to! #whomademyclothes @fash_revcan @fash_revyeg
