I'm back from my unbelievably FANTASTIC trip to Vancouver Island. Can I go back please? I must say, I LOVE CANADA!! I really do. The people are so nice and so polite. For example, in the States, when a city bus is out of service for the day, all it will say is "NIS" on the board above the windshield. Short, sweet, to the point. In Canada, however, the board above the windshield flashes, "SORRY, I AM NOT IN SERVICE".
I had the absolute BEST time and the weather was just perfect. In the mid-70's, nice and cool on the water, very sunny, bright blue sky......I could not have asked for better. I have to take my pictures for processing at the camera shop today, so I have nothing to show you......yet. But since I shot 72 frames of black & white film, 168 frames of colour film and about 250 digital photos, I will have PLENTY to post when I get them back on Friday. I saw orca whales on the whale watch, and I have my fingers and toes crossed that those pictures came out.
The song which will forever be linked with this trip is "Life is a Highway" by Tom Cochrane, which I must purchase as soon as possible. Sort of like last year's trip to Vancouver, where "Bittersweet Symphony" reminds me of being there.
