The fireplace in the foyer at Craigdarroch. Hand carved stag clock was original.
They let people park too close. I had to get a close in panorama to avoid them. Craigdarroch had fallen into disrepair when it was renovated to original condition in the 60's. It had been used as a wartime hospital in the 20's, a college, the school district HQ. They did a great job on putting back to close to original condition and putting in a lot of period correct, if not original, furniture.
The Sunken Garden at Butchart Gardens. This was once a completely barren limestone quarry.

Woo pig sooie! This isn't an Arkansas Razorback, but it might as well be. Rubbing the nose for good luck keeps it nice and shiny.
