BC Life Part 1
Have got bored with waiting for my computer lead so will post blogs in no particular order. The lovely Will came out from London a few weeks ago and performed an essential role of cheese smuggler (the plastic cheese is here is an offence to cheese and shouldn't be allowed to have the same name) and we flew up to Port Hardy at the top of Vancouver Island (along with lots of men with facial hair and fishing rods) and went to see the grizzly bears having a good feast of the sporning salmon before they hibernate for the winter. Do not be fooled by their cute fluffy coats; they are vicious and huge. The river was heaving with salmon, it was an incredible sight. The scenery here is absolutely stunning; it makes me feel the same way that mountains do - the expanse is calming and gives perspective. We had a lovely time. There will be many more BC shots for you to feast your eyes on.
