Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Totems

We couldn’t make it onto the early ferry today, so we had more time in Victoria. That was nice because yesterday it was too hot to go out, so we didn’t do much. They have a great collection of totems near the waterfront.

Unfortunately, the majority were unidentified by artist or tribe.
