|We had a couple of days of snow|
Here are some pictures of our time here:
When we first arrived, Lindsay would get up early and to down to Goldstream Provincial park to look for the bear that would be there around 7am. He would swoop his paw down into the water to try and catch some fish.
Down the end of our street is a Manley Creek Provincial Park, there are a few wooden bridges that span over the creek until it reaches the sea. You can walk right down to the pebbly beach.
There haven't been that many sunny days, but this was one of the rare occasions to so we went exploring to Honeymoon Bay, there is a wildflower walk, but of course it's the wrong time of year for the flowers.
We took a couple of trips off the island over to the mainland, which entails driving an hour, waiting an hour to put the truck onto the ferry, then a 1.5 hour ferry ride. There are a number of routes to the mainland, so now we've done Horseshoe Bay to Departure Bay and back, Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen and back and our last one will be from Victoria to Port Angeles in the US. We have to get there 90 minutes before sailing as we have to go through US customs on the Canadian side - you could imagine the chaos if everyone went through immigration when they get off the boat on the other side.
