just have to say hello and thank you to our friends north of our border.


What an absolutely pretty place and simply wonderful, lovely,people.
Great looking, fit , honestly friendly folks from all over the planet working and enjoying Canadian hospitality and well deserved pride in their country. Everyone we met seemed happy to be there be they Canadian or not. The single rude thing I saw was of course a pair of fellow Americans (two yankee women so....) mad that the gal behind the counter got the exchange rate off on their two 57 cent post cards and left in a huff. I apologized for my country on their behalf. Heard one cuss word- a pretty mild 'damn' uttered by another fellow American the entire week we were there. Otherwise it was as refreshing and wholesome as cold whole milk.

Thanks for a great visit and exemplary hospitality.

Mi.
Glad to hear you made it home safely bro; really happy you had a great time!


Don't you ever wonder why
In spite of all that's wrong here
There's still so much that goes so right
And beauty abounds?

The thunder rolls and the baby sighs
And the rain comes down
Don't you wanta thank someone for this?

Doesn't sound like there is ever a bad time to visit. Man- those are some trees!

I'm up in the central interior of B.C., and have family and friends in Victoria. Every once in a while, especially when our local winter is dragging on just too long, a small getaway to Victoria is just the sort of medicine that's called for.

So pleased you were treated well, and enjoyed your visit! Crossing international borders, even into traditionally friendly nations can be nerve wracking experience in these times.
