Many years ago, my wife and I visited a pastor friend and his wife in Vancouver, while he was taking a class being taught by Eugene Peterson at Regent College. While there, we all took a ferry boat ride to Vancouver Island - a very worthwhile venture. Our boat ride was breathtaking and Victoria's Inner Harbour was beautiful, with lots to see and do. We then traveled about 15 miles north, to visit the beautiful Butchart Gardens, with its awesome views and spectacular floral displays! Both were well worth the price of admission.
