Ted Linden's trip to Butchard Gardens.
This summer a good friend of mine talked me into going on a road trip to Vancouver Island. Since the last time I was there I was a child and have no memory of the place, I jumped at the chance. My friend was worried that I would miss something and not get the full effect of the Island. My response was that everything I see here is new to me so if I miss something it was not a concern. I felt like a child seeing things for the first time and what I did see was awesome. Although I'm sure there is much more for me to see, I have no regrets of missing anything. I truly believe Vancouver Island is by far a nicer destination than even Hawaii or Mexico. We don't have to go half way around the world to see what beauty it has to offer, all we have to do is look in our backyard.
I will be updating my visit to Vancouver Island so please come back again for another peek.
