No one can explain to me why the area I live in is East Wellington. Wellington Hall is just north of central Nanaimo. South Wellington is, well, south of town. East Wellington is WEST of the city. It's not East of much except the mountain that is the city's backdrop.
But this is the city with Buttertubs Marsh, Jingle Pot Road, Dingle Bingle Hill, and Twiggly Wiggly Way. What's a little directional confusion in a city where children named the streets?
