It was a warm and busy day in Oak Bay on August 10th, with two big events featured in Oak Bay Village and along Bowker Creek. The annual Car Show brought out big crowds and great cars of all types and vintages. At Bowker Creek, it was the annual Artists’ Brush-Up, with two notable artists from Oak Bay posing for a photo, Pat Martin-Bates and Victor Lotto (Victor is also one of our Parks and Rec Commission members). I also bought a painting from Victor, a wonderful scene of Vancouver’s Chinatown, circa 195o’s, that now hangs in our dining room.
The day ended with the Super Moon and I walked up to Monterey School to get some unobstructed photos of the huge orb. It lit up the streets and the playing field and was a spectacular sight in our night sky. What a wonderful way to wrap up one of the best days in August. Hoping you enjoyed the day as much as we did.
