Nanaimo

Nanaimo's energetic waterfront...

Nanaimo is a small city about two hours north of Victoria. It's known as the "Harbour City" and I'm only just coming to appreciate it for it's nice blend of amenities and small community appeal.

It had a bad reputation in the past for drugs and general seediness, but seems to be quietly re-inventing itself. A highlight is the walk along the sea wall that runs along the waterfront that appeals with its mix of restaurants, gift shops and ice cream parlours. You can see a bit of it in the lower left-hand corner of the photo. Curiously, I didn't see any buskers which would be a natural fit for this attraction.
