Two women sitting to the right of a marble bar like front desk. They are both smiling broadly, and sitting in office chairs. The one on the left has long blonde hair, and the one on the right has long brown hair. There are yellow files on a shelf to the right.

Happy Friday from the Arbutus Team

Smiling faces to help our Friday be awesome. Good morning Caitlyn (left) and welcome Olivia (right)!

A group of girls in their purpleish blue softball jerseys, which have a capital K inside a diamond shape that looks like Superman's logo. They have their arms crossed in an X shape. There are two rows of girls, and then one lying powed in front in the black padding of a catcher. They are on a baseball diamond, and there is a sign behind them on which we can read "Kryptonite." They are smiling.

Victoria Kryptonite: Power-Pose

Here’s the Victoria Kryptonite power posing. They’re on their way to California to compete this weekend in the Triple Crown Sports Classic Soft Ball Tournament. Of course it’s happening at the Field of Dreams in Riverside CA. They’re the only Canadian team going, and they’ll be joined by fan-mom Dr. Veronica Hewstan. Good luck athletes,

Two women in the foreground from the chest up are shoulder to shoulder and smiling. On the left is Libby who has long dark hair with a grey streak on her left. On the right is a woman with red hair, which is tied back. In the background is a man grinning and popping up to be in the photo. Behind him is a blonde woman who is slightly blurred. They are indoors.

Weekend Throwbacks: Congratulations Lorna!

Here’s a throwback to Libby’s weekend. One of our gift certificates was won by the lovely Lorna at Rosemarie Colterman’s party (www.rosiesays.ca).

A brick building at night, which is lit up by lights on the outside of the second floor. It looks about four stories with a clock tower on the left which is more in the dark except for the lit up clock face.

Sincerely, Rosie: Writing from Melbourne

Rosie says: “This is the view from my apartment in Melbourne – Flinders station is a major train station in the central business district. Suffering serious Jetlag… 3:00am here = 10am YESTERDAY back home.”

A woman with her black hair pulled rightly back into a bun is smiling to the left of the camera and wearing a black tank top. We can see her from the chest up. There are two splatter paint style paintings slightly out of focus in the background on either side of her head.

Meet Dr. Veronica Hewstan

Dr. Veronica Hewstan is our chiropractor! Veronica was nice and sat down with us today, at Discovery, for an interview (stay tuned). The paintings in the background are by Joe Rosenblatt.

A plane that says "New Zealand" on the side is parked, and this photo is taken through a window. The sky is cloudy with the sun breaking through a bit.

Up, Up, and Away to the Land Down Under!

Rosie Chamberlain is on her way to Auckland and then Australia. All night flight!

A view looking across an inlet at sunset. The silhouette of buildings and forest are visible on the other side of the water. The sky is blue and pink, which is reflected in the calm water.

Victoria Views for Days

What a day here in the beautiful Victoria, BC! And let’s always remember and respect that we are enjoying these views on unceded Lekwungen Territory.

A sign saying "Welcome to Oak Bay" is underneath who whale bones arranged like a wishbone with the wide end at the top. This is all surrounded by beautiful flowers. which are fully in bloom.

Those Oak Bay Bones

Sunny day in Oak Bay with some local art!

A young blonde boy standing on a rock surrounded bright blue water who is holding a small net. There is blue bright sky streaked with white clouds above him, and sail boats and green trees in the background.

Still Some Summer Left!

Making the most of the last days of summer at Oak Bay Marina.

A very large orange punpkin with "Saanich Peninsula Movers" printed beside the stem in black is being weighed on a large scale outside. There is a crown watching, and the man doing the weighing is in jean overalls and a red cap.

Saanich Peninsula Movers… & their Pumpkin!

Saanich fair, enjoying the huge pumpkin competition. This pumpkin is sponsored by Saanich Peninsula Movers.

A close up of the front tire of a parked bike without a rider. It is parked on a sidewalk and the sky behind it is blue with white fluffy clouds. There are out of focus shops in the distance.

Nice Ride and Future Red Barn

Nice ride spotted at the corner of Amphion and Oak Bay Ave. You can also see a future location of the Red Barn in the background! We’re excited!

In the foreground is a clump of orange blooming flowers with tall green stems interspersed between them. The flowers are in focus. The background is out of focus and is a body of water with a blurry downtown and trees on the other side.

Light & Flora

Great light at Victoria Harbour right now!

A soccer field at dusk with rectangular buildings in the distance. The sun is setting so the horizon still has some sun but the upper part of the sky is dusky blue, and there is a skydiver with their parachute pulled descending from the upper left.

How Do You Get To School?

Here’s a throwback to a UVic Vikes women’s soccer game last fall, when skydivers opened the game with this spectacular midfield landing. School is starting soon. How are you arriving? Photo taken on unceded Lkwungen Territory.

A close up of four blueberry muffins sprinkles with sugar. They are on a white surface.

Those Days Clients Bring Breakfast

One of our clients brought in delicious muffins today! Thanks for sharing Libby!

Two different art works side by side. On the left is a black and white painting of a woman's head, shoulders, and chest. She has her hair in a large bun atop her head, and round thin glasses. Her left hand is visible coming up to brush her chin. Past her neck is a long sleeved black shirt that is done with water colour so it has a blurred, dripping aesthetic. On the right is an abstract piece with blues, pinks, black, and a mustard yellow strip on the right. It is done in water colour, and all the colours blur and drip together. It is painted on a white canvas.

Coffee with Sam Eldridge

August is over and the vibrant art of Sam Eldridge is no longer up at Discovery. Thanks, Sam, for adding some extra zip to our morning coffees!

A woman standing in an office with brown walls with her left arms on a bar like counter and her right arm flexed. She is smiling, has long black hair, darkwash jeans, and a long sleeved black shirt.

Meet Natasha Watson! And a happy Friday to you all!
