lidyvps I should be in Vancouver now, but I'm not. We're in a pretty nice motel now. Very close to the airport. Unpleasant surprise: very close to the wrong airport .
Goodbye Vancouver Island!

lidyvps Found this small inukshuk a couple of days ago on the beach of Tsa'Kwa'Luten, Quadra Island. Beautiful island, great resort, nice people.
Today it's my last day on wonderful Vancouver Island. I enjoyed every minute, I'll miss you! I hope to come back once! Fortunately I took hundreds and hundreds of pictures, so I have a few to share . Don't know how things will go next week. My Canada trip isn't over yet. Tomorrow I'm traveling to Ontario for a family visit. I'm afraid they don't have wifi, and maybe it's better that way. See you, lovely friends!

lidyvps What would you do: whale watching, bear watching, or fog watching?
It's all possible in Tofino!

lidyvps I like to keep in contact, a little, with my Instagram world during my holiday. I really love your comments, forgive me for not always replying or keeping up with your feeds. Imagine me every day in a different motel room. Sometimes good, sometimes hmm not so good, but always with bad wifi , and my travel company knows there's an app called Instagram, but that's all; and I don't want to look too addicted . Is it Monday today? Hope you had a great start of the week.
And thanks so much Tyler @tylerforesthauser for pointing me to Mystic Beach!

  •   lidyvps Hi Jone, thank you! I enjoy it so much! Canada is so beautiful. My time here on Vancouver island is almost done, later this week I'm flying to Toronto for a family visit. I'm looking forward to that too! Hope you're doing fine @chewycolor 2w
  •   chewycolor Let me know if you want to do a photo walk while you're in Toronto :-) 2w
  •   lidyvps Wouldn't that be great?! But I have no clue how to manage . We'll arrive at 9 pm at the airport. Then rent a car, and go to our hotel, and off we go in the early morning... I'll wave to you @chewycolor 1w

lidyvps I can hardly believe I'm here. What a beautiful island! Rain forest, the most beautiful beaches I've ever seen. And: fog ! This is in the middle of lovely nowhere: Port Renfrew. Probably a nice place, but it was all covered in fog!
Hope you're all doing well!

lidyvps Good evening lovely people! I'm sorry for being so absent lately... Tomorrow is my last working day before my trip to Canada and I need to do all the packing now . On Tuesday I'll arrive in Vancouver, and the day after on Vancouver Island.
Dear Canadian friends, or anyone else who spent some time over there: do you have any suggestions for a visit? I've been there before, 5 years ago, so I know the top sites. What are your personal favorites? Thanks a million in advance!
And if you're there and see an old (sort of ) Dutch girl with a camera, chasing light and fog - it could be me!

lidyvps Thank you very much, dear friends, for your warm and kind words. It's been an emotional week and it still is. I should be preparing now for holidays, but I'm waiting for the right mood. Only a few days of hard working, and then Canada...! Have a wonderful evening 4w

lidyvps She's not just a girl.
I had the lucky opportunity to meet her once, and she's not just a girl. She's a wonderful sensitive beautiful lady with a great sense of humor. And a fantastic gallery as well! Dear M, so happy and honored to have you as a friend!
I can't imagine you don't know her, but if you don't, please head over to her gallery @blue.ridinghood
Her shot - I long for some cool winter temperatures these days - my edit.

lidyvps The day after it feels like an even bigger tragedy than yesterday. It shouldn't make any difference, but so many Dutch victims... No personal loss, but the stories come closer: I know someone who knows someone... #prayformh17
