Yes I can / Valdy / 1976
We’re back from a week on “The Island”.
Around here when you say “The Island”
everybody knows what you’re talking about.
And if you’ve ever been there you know that
Vancouver Island is a piece of paradise.
That’s why a lot of folks here retire to ‘The Island’.
When we got back to Calgary we were pretty tired.
I often used to joke that I worked harder on vacation than I did at at work.
All the walking, hiking and exploring can wear you out.
Especially when you’re 73 years old.
30 years ago that wouldn’t have even made me sweat.
But those times are gone.
In all this, Rose and I took over 2000 photos.
It’s an old Photojournalism trick – take a absolute ton of pictures –
one or two are bound to be useful.
And thanks to digital technology you can do that these days.
In the past the film would have cost us a fortune.
A lot of our photos are just tourist quality fare though,
but we still came up with a few good shots to show.
Flew out. We only had a week and to drive from
Calgary to Tofino would have taken a whole day.

It takes about and hour and a half to fly over.
Land at Victoria Airport (up the peninsula).
… head for Tofino.
