Escape to the Wild West Coast

Sometimes I want to escape to the wild west coast. To get to the Island you take the ferry from the city, and then, all of a sudden, you’re in the island world.

  1. Oh these photos are a wonderful delight to my eyes. I have Vancouver Island forever in my heart and I still to this day call it home, even though I moved east many many years ago. Thanks for bringing back the wonderful feelings of escape.
