What an interesting board--I have spent hours browsing through the messages and taking pages of notes... My husband and I (from Minnesota) will be visiting BC, Vancouver and Vancouver Island this August and have no clue what we want to do, where we want to stay and where to dine on the island(s). Any suggestions? Our itinerary already includes "C". We're open to just about anything. We LOVE seafood as we can never get anything decent here. Two years ago we visited Nova Scotia and ate seafood like there was no tomorrow. What a blast! Any thoughts on traveling all the way up to Port McNeill to do some orca/bear watching? Are there decent places to stay/dine up there?
Any advice will be appreciated.
