Re: We stopped going several years ago.
Yeah we do Vancouver Island every time we go. We do the west coast from Uclulet and Tofino onwards (even up to the notorious suddenly Nootka Sound).
Sooo beautiful! And also when you speak to the folks there they never put on a smug smile and say "Hey didn't we save your ass back in WW2?"
I swear the next American that says that to me will get a swift kick to the bollocks and the return phrase of -
"Yes thank you very much, we appreciate your sacrifice but we did pay you back and if you had joined when we asked you to, it would have all been over much sooner!"
