Island saunter

Barely in Chetwynd for more than 24 hours, I reorganized summer gear into Road Trip acceptable kit.  Destination: Spring! 

Still shaking off its winter coat, Chetwynd was cold and blowy and I was keen to escape.  Sleeping bags, dodgy stove, tent, portable music devices, ample space for tetris-ing Big City purchases into a wee Civic and we were off!

Highlights included: Vancouver eats from sushi to dim sum with legit Chinese speakers; Salt Spring Island with its farm stands on the side of the road offering garlic, dried tomatoes, ginger cookies and daffodils, oh the daffodils! to local beers and oysters to sea walks looking for seals, otters, whales; Campbell River's exceptional museum and night in with the ever lovable, passionate and hospitable Prestons; cycling around Victoria in between visiting Dan's family and catching The Skatalies lackluster show; looking out the window on the way from Kamloops to Chetwynd.  

Whoa birds! On the boat from Vancouver to Victoria
