Default Our new vacation spot

After doing a "live it" (re: trying it), we decided to buy a vacation property (RV "park" model) on Vancouver Island near Sooke on the West Coast of the Island.

We are 200 feet from the Sea with a view of the Olympic National Park on the other side.

Until I retire, we will not be able to use it that much (as it is 15 hours of driving or 1.5 hours of flying) but we are really looking forward to be there next summer.

So, a teaser is in order:






On a grey day:




At the Goldstream Provincial Park (about 40 minutes away):



Enjoy!
