My husband had a conference in Vancouver, B.C., so we were gone about 10 days, driving up there and back. I got to stop at antique stores in Oregon and Washington, and I got quite a few vintage patterns.
My MIL visited Victoria once years ago and told us to be sure and see Butchart Gardens, which we did. We got there early and were the first people through the gate on a lovely morning. That is another seriously beautiful place, and the history is interesting, too.
