Thanks to Canada for hosting the women's Fifa cup. My wife had the pleasure of attending the USA vs Nigeria match at BC Place in Vancouver, the day after we picked up our Escape.

Also, congrats to USA for winning the championship They are a very talented group of athletes!

We watched the final, although its the only match we've seen. Great play by the US team. If the American men could play as well as the women's team, perhaps soccer would be more popular here.

Wow! That kind of scoring in a soccer game is very rare. A couple of the shots were just beautiful.

I think that if soccer was more popular, the men's team would be higher in the world standings. Kind of a catch 21. Lol.

The USA women's team played so well and were a joy to watch. Glad they had a huge supportive crowd in Vancouver to play for!

I will tell you what I like about Canada-- Victoria. What a nice city! I left my trailer in Mt. Vernon and made an overnight trip via ferry just to see Victoria, and I wasn't disappointed. I'll have to go back sometime and stay on Vancouver Island longer, with the trailer. I was really impressed.

And when you do, be sure to let forum folks know. Those of us who live here -- at least this one of us! But I'm sure most others as well -- would be more than happy to share the hidden secrets of Victoria & Vancouver Island, that only those who live or have visited here, might know.

We love showing off our home turf almost as much as we love seeing other parts of the continent!

Victoria is a very lovely city, I love visiting there too, as well as the rest of Vancouver Island which is beautiful too. BUT, there is a heck of a lot more to like about Canada. Just like the rest of North America, lots of great places to see. However, it would take many lifetimes to see it all.

Yep, we love Victoria! We take the Clipper up from Seattle about every two years and just have a blast. I'm looking forward to eventually getting a trailer and exploring the island that way.

Did you happen to discover the JOYS of Rogers Chocolates?!??!?! Especially their Victoria Creams? OMG - heaven in dark chocolate and then some. We mail order them several times a year.

No, no chocolate for me. I went to the Royal BC Museum, some art galleries, and just parked the truck downtown and walked around for a while. Victoria seems like a busy, happy place. I hope to spend more time there in the future.
