Vacations You Should Take: Vancouver Island

Since I'm on vacation this week not thinking about buying a house or working, my blog posts are going to be vacation-themed!  Woo!  Basically I am going to tell you some sweet places that you should go on vacation.

Place the first:  the west coast of Vancouver Island!

In spring 2010 (around this same time of year) Brahm and I made a Vancouver Island road trip.  We drove to Banff, then Vancouver, then Ucluelet and stayed there for 4 or 5 nights (I can't remember), then back home through the Cascade mountains in the states (primarily because I needed to buy some lime yogurt, OBVIOUSLY).  It was amazing!  Being by the legit ocean in the rainforest was so relaxing and fun.  We loved just walking down to the beach and looking for starfish and crabs and sea anemones in the tide pools.

We stayed at The Cabins at Terrace Beach which were awesome.  Because it was low season they upgraded us to a super fancy cabin!  Every day we just walked down to the Co-op and bought some food to cook, or went to a seafood restaurant for seriously fresh and delicious fish.  We went whale watching and hiking and watched a lot of episodes of Say Yes to the Dress when it was raining.

On the way home, we made a stop at a comic/sci-fi convention in Calgary so we could meet the stars of Battlestar Galactica!!! and Ryan North of Dinosaur comics!!! and visit my cousins.  It was an amazing trip and are definitely planning to do it again one of these years.  You should go there!
