Cruise ship Vancouver BC

Take a cruise out of Vancouver BC

I was looking the other day at what cruises were offered out of Vancouver and was surprised to learn there’s a lot. My wife and I took an Alaskan cruise a few years ago but I had no idea of the size of the cruise industry here. In 2014, 29 cruise ships called into Port Metro Vancouver 243 times carrying more than 812,000 passengers. This year they are looking at a similar, if not better season. (more…)

Plowed road on Vancouver Island BC

Thank heavens for plows

With all the bad weather we have experienced in BC this winter, it’s time to take a moment to recognize the efforts of those people that look after us during the storms.

BC Ferries, one of the best trips you'll ever take

How I love thy chocolate buffet filled with Roger’s chocolates, decadent cupcakes, chocolate mousse cups, Florentines, four different kinds of chocolate cake, Grand Marnier Mountains, and  – oh my, I must go back for more!

I love the serenity of the Seawest Lounge, the chaos of the playground, the flat screen TV’s playing the hockey games, the coffee machines (Dear Lord, thank you for blessing the BC Ferries with Americano machines that make divine coffee for us unfortunate coffee snobs of the world).

I love the Smart Start breakfast (it’s actually good!), the wireless internet, and best of all, the fact that I can get my toes done while en route to a business meeting in Vancouver? Heaven. (more…)
