A coastline of beauty in Vancouver, Canada

Looking for a paradise? Visit Vancouver and Vancouver Island, Canada.

We explored desolate beaches and tidal pools, walked through old-growth forests, braved choppy waters to see whales and sea lions, and rode bicycles around the city.

I did not have the habit of photographing great meals (yet), but we had fabulous meals everywhere we ate.
