Wanderlust: Vancouver Island

I spent my first year of university on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, and fell in love with the landscape. The University of Victoria had a small campus at the time and I remember spending peaceful homework breaks under the trees or watching the ducks at the fountain. I lived a block away from the Galloping Goose Trail, another great place to walk and relax.

I frequently took the ferry between Tsawwassen and Sidney to visit family and these trips became almost magical when the fog descended and covered the surrounding islands. A seagull sat on the same part of the deck each trip and I named him Fred, offering him bites of my dinner (which I should not have done, sorry BC Ferries!). I never did manage a good photo of the bald eagles, which we sighted frequently on the nearby islands. I took the following photos with my first SLR, a Canon EOS Elan II.
