Back from a week in Victoria, BC where we hung out in a LaLa Land of antiques, floral furniture patterns and overly warm houses. Some good to be home! Coming back from areas like that make one realize just how poor our province is. Well, at any rate it's still very charming, and it's home.
Never been there, but it sounds and looks like a beautiful place.
My son recently moved to Vancouver Island and says pretty much what you
say . . . except the real estate is priced beyond the means of the
average person. So while our province is "poor" and BC is "rich", you
need to be making a lot of money to even think of buying a house there.
That said, it doesn't get much snow . . . :-)
Gets lots of rain though.
Lots of hippies too! But he loves it except for the price of real
estate. I've only been to BC for 3-4 hours at the airport 7-8 years ago
on the way to Asia . . . can't comment on a province or city based on
looking out an plane window and dashing between gates at the airport in
Vancouver to catch a connecting flight!
I drove over with my younger daughter who was then in Edmonton, to
stay with my cousin who had bought a house up near the university. As
he says now, it became his extra pension. He sold on retirement and
now is in Peru, last I heard.
I thought it was okay as far as cities went, but did not feel any call
to me. Much prefer Halifax.
