    • Royal Canadian Mounted Police

      Vancouver 7 hours ago

      For many years I've wanted to see the Royal Canadian Mounted Police show and I note that they are preforming at the Rotary Club of Kamloops Aurora Centennial and at the Victoria Military Music Society in August. I've googled both of these organisations about the details with zero success. Does anyone please have any info about these events. Many thanks

      We have the chance to visit from London during 1st week in Feb. Probably not the best time to visit but its all we have. Will there be enough for us to do/see? Will we be able to drive around (Whistler?) or will the weather make that impossible? Grateful for your thoughts.

    • Pender Island ... Confused about cars, ferries and traveling to and fro....

      by Tantalize Online Now May 4, 2005 at 1:46 PM

      Greetings,

      I've just stumbled here via some googling and am seeking advice. I'm planning a trip to Vancouver for sometime in August, with hopes to visit a few days in Victoria and two days at Poet's Cove on Pender Island. At this point, I'm not sure if this is feasible...are they close enough in proximity? I keep hearing the ferries "book up in advance"? How does this work....do folks not need to travel back and forth? And, I prefer not to have to rent a car in Vancouver, but is renting suggested in Victoria? Can cars be rented on Pender Island? Are there cabs? I saw a post about catching a ride or hitch-hiking and I just can't go there. *smiles*

      Any suggesstions on how to make what I think could be a fantastic and incredible vacation actually work logistically without loosing my mind, having to be "rideless" or consider hitch-hiking to get where I need or want to go?

      Any help would be so greatly appreciated!!!

      Thanks!!

      T.

      Carless on Pender

      by msazadi Online Now Sep 8, 2003 at 1:43 PM

      I will be spending three days on N Pender Island and wonder how easy it is to get around without a car. I am ok with walking a mile or two for anything, but then there's another leg coming back.... Also, has anyone taken just a day trip FROM Pender into Victoria and back? And yes, I am studying those BC Ferry pages like a hawk!
