private - here be dragons

Dragon Alley Library

Down a long, narrow, brick-encased passageway, I leave  Victoria’s chinatown behind and explore Dragon Alley.

It’s a townhouse complex built inside the shell of a big-old, historic building.  It’s a funky maze of teeny, ground-floor businesses with living spaces above.  This builds on the trendy ‘tiny house’ theme, creating  a hip, ‘tiny town’.

Cool, eh?

And what does any tiny town need?
A library.
Woo hoo!   Another public book exchange.

Take a book.
Leave a book.

Imagine the adventures we can find inside a book we find inside the tiny library of tiny town…

I like the friendliness of this community.  I also like the whimsy.  Check out the spin on the classic “No Trespassing” sign on the stairs.

Private.
Here. there Be Dragons.

Yup, that’s the title of a book…
Clever, eh?

Or are there really dragons preening up on those super- envy -worthy roof-top balconies ???
