On the RoadPacific Northwest VacationPosted on August 13, 2010by Jennifer May I just got back from two weeks visiting family & friends on and around Vancouver Island. We took 6 ferries in 12 days and… Spent 3 nights on Valdez, a boat-access-only island that has no electricity or fresh running water but is deluxe all the same We sourced goods from local islands camped on a hill in a tent that became target practice went fishing and rested in a hammock overhanging a cliff. Back on Vancouver Island, my dad and I visited what used to be our front yard and had a snack. My mom and step-dad hosted a pork roast and invited the neighbors. We took a ferry to Salt Spring Island where my brother tried to catch a fish and later I swam with my sister. Off to Deep Bay on Vancouver Island where my second family lives they caught a whack of prawns and grilled us a feast. Then we took one last ferry on the way to the airport.
