We (Colin and Joan) are approaching retirement after raising our family in Victoria, BC.
We enjoy live music and art of all kinds. For that reason we feel very fortunate to live in Victoria, home of many musicians and artists. We love walking and regularly do so - downtown for shopping and to visit Hermann's Jazz Club (our main haunt), and many other art galleries, music venues, and restaurants. Closer to home we frequently walk to James Bay Square, with Thrifty Foods, Pharmasave, a Senior's Gym and a big favourite of ours - Super Chance, one of Victoria's favorite second hand consignment stores. We also very much enjoy swimming in a nearby Lake.
We are mainly English speakers but Joan can get by in very basic French. Our daughter speaks Mandarin (she has lived in mainland China, going to university there) and our son-in-law is fluent in Cantonese. They would be helpful should we need translators.
