Victoria, BC, Canada
Welcome to Lime Bay and our virtual store (no storefront, sorry). We started our on-line books in September of 1997. Why?.. because years of loving, reading and collecting books has gotten out of hand - that the hobby has grown bigger than the numerous book shelves throughout the house. Our own interests are B.C. History, Art, Science and Nature, Collectables (especially toys, bottles), militaria, mystery and science fiction. If you didn’t see books you were interested in listed in the system, please feel free to inquire and we can either do a local search, or add to our wants list. So where on earth is Lime Bay? It is an historic little cove off Victoria’s outer harbour which looks out at the Straits of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic mountains, a view we fortunately get to share. The history of Lime Bay dates roughly to the 13th Century when it was used as a defensive site by the Salish peoples. In Historic times it served as a burial area for native peoples. Few traces remain of its past history, and today the bay’s claim to fame is Spinnaker’s Brew Pub, a must-stop on your waterfront stroll. Victoria has always maintained a strong British influence. It is situated on Vancouver Island on the far west Coast of North America. It is a city of gardens, antiques, lots of book stores, and a beautiful spot for a holiday.
