Local Crafts at Ogden Point, Victoria Vancouver Island 2017

One of the joys of coming down to take pictures of cruise ships at Ogden Point is discovering the many local crafts made by local artists. You will not find this type of quality at your local mall for sure. If you do come into a port , please take the time to visit port crafts which are normally in the dock area. Majority are reasonably priced and majority will take credits cards or your currency . My problem is I cannot resist at times so end up supporting local artists and of course my family end up with surprised presents  🙂

The below picture is the large tent now used by our local artists. IMG_3017

Ogden Point May 2014 Cruise Ships

Some pictures of the recent ships (May 2014) into Ogden Point (Victoria BC ) Vancouver Island for the Alaska Season 2014 which I have taken from trusted iPhone5 🙂
I started a Facebook site last year 🙂    https://www.facebook.com/groups/325535934241017/?fref=ts
where I can locate remotely the ship coming into our harbour , check the ships schedule and give you more information as to where it came from and is going to.. If the weather is lousy that day or I cannot access our family car then at least I am able to reach out to folks.

My blog itself allows me to share picture I took at the harbour and post here. Just have to do more frequently for you all.
I have finally discovered ( nerd here) that I can load multiple pictures at same time..
What I plan to do is make a slideshow and upload that at some point.
Our Alaska season is just starting , so the weather is not that great at times, when I venture to the harbour in early evening and sometimes the sunny day becomes a misty day.
This year I will probably invest in a WordPress direct internet address just to try some more blogging opportunities.
Please leave any comments that tell me if you enjoy this look at our local cruising world.
Thank you to my friends and virtual ones around the world who give me ideas
