A to Z Challenge: W is for Berwick Street (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2017 Great and Powerful 2017 Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, W is for Berwick Street!  Hey, there’s a W there!

Here is a Google map showing where Berwick Street is located in James Bay.

What I could find out about Berwick Street:

Berwick is yet another one-block street in our neighbourhood.  It starts at Boyd Street and dead-ends before reaching San Jose (see J).  And this time, there is no escape, even by foot, except to turn around and head back out to Boyd Street.  I always wondering what people living on streets like Berwick think when you drive or walk down their streets knowing full well that they dead-end.

Yeah, that’s all I got folks.  I have no idea where the name came from, and I have no interesting facts about Berwick Street.  There are a bunch of retirement homes around Victoria and the Island called Berwick, but they probably have nothing to do with the street…

Here are some pictures I took of Berwick Street.

That’s all there is, folks…

And just to pad things a bit, here is a telephone pole at the entrance to Berwick:

What else do you want to know about Berwick Street?  Ask away, and I will see what I can find out for you!

SO glad it’s Kitten Thursday

You have NO idea how glad.  The only thing that would make today even better is if I could spend all day at home enjoying Kitten Thursday.  Ah well…

A to Z Challenge: V is for Violet Lane (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2017 Great and Powerful 2017 Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, V is for Violet Lane!

Here is a Google map showing where Violet Lane is located in James Bay.

What I could find out about Violet Lane:

Violet Lane is another one-block street which runs from Thetis Lane to St. Andrews.  I’m not really sure how it ranks street status, when it is really more like a back alley.   But, I guess that what makes it kind of an interesting street to add to this challenge.  Plus, it actually begins with V!  Oh, and I should mention – didn’t see any violets…

Here are some pictures I took of Violet Lane.

At the Thetis Lane end.

Looking back the other way…

…from the St. Andrews end.

What else do you want to know about Violet Lane?  Ask away, and I will see what I can find out for you!

A to Z Challenge: U is for Huron (#AtoZChallenge)

Welcome to my April 2017 Great and Powerful 2017 Blogging from A to Z Challenge!

Today, U is for Huron Street (sure it is!)!

Here is a Google map showing where Huron Street is located in James Bay.

What I could find out about Huron Street:

Huron Street doesn’t really go anywhere.  It starts at Dallas and Erie, runs down towards the water, and ends.  And there are no heritage houses on Huron.  In fact, there are no houses at all – just condos.  The Canadian Coast Guard, however, has a Regional Operations Centre (http://www.ccg-gcc.gc.ca/e0003922) on Huron.

I don’t know how old Huron Street is – I suspect it dates from the establishment of the Coast Guard Centre, but that’s just a guess.

Here are some pictures I took of Huron Street.

Here we are.

The Coast Guard sign at the entrance to Huron.  Well, close to the entrance…

The view down Huron from Dallas.

One of several waterfalls at the condo complex.

I can’t go any further – that’s Coast Guard territory!

And, looking back up towards Dallas.

What else do you want to know about Huron Street?  Ask away, and I will see what I can find out for you!
