Today we find the Toads at home a little under the weather.  We seem to have caught some form of a flu or something and are really not feeling like our usual 100% toadular selves.  So today we share a couple of pictures that kind of reflect this less-than-brand-new feel we seem to be experiencing.

Yesterday’s post, “The Toad And The Nun“, took a brief look at our heritage site, St. Ann’s Academy.  This beautiful facility was the first learning institution in the city of Victoria, and was accompanied by St. Joseph’s Hospital, right across the street.  Today this hospital is an apartment complex… we’re not sure if it’s a […]

For today’s adventure together, we’re going to take a look at a facility that is one of the original cornerstone buildings for Victoria.  St. Ann’s Academy was one of the first buildings constructed in the area and is now considered a heritage site. St Ann’s Academy is of a typical architecture employed for the design […]

With today’s post, we take one final look at the last house we photographed in an area undergoing massive development.  The entire section of housing here is likely on a short fuse, time-wise, and will probably be consumed and demolished to make way for a new and shiny condo/townhouse unit in the near future.  With […]

We really hope everyone enjoyed their Mothers Day weekend, we sure did!  I took Mrs. Toad out for a lovely picnic by the ocean and we had a wonderful time.  Unfortunately, we didn’t get a chance to go on our second shoot of Chemainus as originally planned so we are going to slightly delay our […]

Well, it’s been a very busy week here at The Hollow and we’d like to wrap it up today by trucking away all the stress of the week and leaving behind a sense of peace and happiness for the coming weekend. While we were at the Cowichan Valley Fine Arts Show last month there were […]

Every good story needs an end, and today we encounter the end of the journey we’ve been on together for a few days now.  In case you’re just joining us, please visit our blog page “The Toad And The Bear” for the back-story to this series.  It is with a tinge of sadness that we […]

As we continue our way further up the mountain (please see our blog “The Toad And The Bear” for the backstory) the dichotomies become a little more evident if you look for them.  Yesterday, we saw a lot that appears to be currently used for both storage of landscaping materials as well as an area […]

We continue our adventure together taking a close look at the Bear Mountain complex with a bit of a bang today.  The sight of a crane at a development site might not be an earth shattering piece of news, but when placed in the context of this story it becomes yet another element of interest. […]

OK, let’s imagine for a moment that part of the reason you just bought your new house was because you were promised a thriving town to facilitate easy living.  Twinkies, Ho-Ho’s, Snickers Bars, 12 packs of both soda & beer, movie rentals, haircuts…  all just a few feet from the doorway of your new abode.  […]
