Vancouver Island with kids on the Victoria Clipper

An almost Car-free trip to Vancouver Island with kids in about 48 hours or so

August 6, 2017

As much as we Seattleites die a little when people say “Pike’s Market” instead of “Pike Place Market,” it’s probably a little the same up in Vancouver when people think Victoria and Victoria Island are the same place too.  As neighbors to the south, we know that Victoria Island does not exist, but Victoria on […]

Unexpected Chickens on our Electric Chuckanut Drive

Unexpected Chickens on an electric drive down the Chuckanut

July 6, 2016

Windy turns and hidden bakeries, scenic pull-outs and switchbacks reminiscent of the old Sea-to-Sky highway from Vancouver to Whistler are all reason to drive the Chuckanut Route that hugs the coast from Mt Vernon to Bellingham for about a 30 minute drive.  With small kids and family up north, we were always in a rush […]
