Victoria, British Columbia on Vancouver Island is a beautiful place that has become even more popular, since I visited 12 years ago. It appears more people have moved to the city and the population increases on the weekends with tourists. Nevertheless, spending the day at Fisherman's Wharf is enjoyable. There are stores, great food and ice cream, and a quaint boathouse community.

A favorite place to visit in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada is Dr. Sun Yat-Sen Classical Chinese Garden. It is a peaceful location in the middle of a busy city. The population of Vancouver has grown a lot since my last visit 12 years ago, so the classical Chinese garden offers a restful break. (Stanley Park is also a good option.)
The city of Surrey is about 21 miles (35 kilometers) south of Vancouver. It is part of the metro Vancouver area. Arts and culture are embraced in Surrey.

(Some scenes have been filmed inside the building.)
West Vancouver is a beautiful city located about five miles (eight kilometers) northwest of Vancouver. It is an affluent community and Lighthouse Park has attractive walking trails.

I visited Washington State and British Columbia, Canada and will share photos, information and a video in the next few blog posts.
Oak Harbor, Washington is on Whidbey Island. It is the largest and most populated area on the island with more stores and restaurants than the smaller towns. Overall, Whidbey Island is a peaceful place and ideal for people who do not want to live in or visit a city. Seattle is about 35 miles away by car or ferry.
