West Coast of Canada

Welcome to the West Coast of Canada. We are spending a few months on Vancouver Island this winter and I must say I could sure get used to the warmer weather. The Quail above was perched on the fence of the condo we are staying at, he had plenty of little friends running around on the lawn as well. 
It's it a beauty?

We took a drive down a coastal road near Maple Bay and the bright green moss covered everything....

The temperatures were around +10 on this day and a light rain had passed through earlier in the day.

Could I get used to living on the West Coast? Well we sure would consider it, the -30 weather back home sure makes us think about warmer... greener parts. 

Could I live in a houseboat like this? Not sure... but I sure could live in a condo on the waterfront!
I hoped you enjoyed visiting today, I will post more about our 
Retirement travels.
Thank you for your sweet comments!



  1. Wanda, what beautiful pictures. I especially think moss is so beautiful. Such a wonderful shade of green. I could live there. Right now in Ontario is freezing~

  2. What beautiful photos. Lovely green moss!

  3. Beautiful! I opt for warmer weather any day! :)

    Thanks so much for your bloggy friendship!


  4. Glad you are enjoying your stay on the west coast ~ it does look beautiful!

    Take care,

  5. I couldn't resist peeking when I saw the blog title - visiting via Stonehouse Living. We did exactly what you are contemplating and moved to Vancouver Island after a winter holiday. We've never looked back. It is a little slice of heaven, and is a whole lot better than -30!
