February already! How time flies when you are having fun!
February gives us a warm and fuzzy feeling all over. The traveling road show is fast approaching as we continue our journey across Canada researching for our www.CanadaEH.net website.
Statistics show February is the first month of the year where internet numbers spike as people begin to think more about upcoming sunshine months. Hence the reason for my boyish excitement as we have just completed another major upgrade in preparing our websites with more features and more information.
Our www.GulfIslandsEH.com Tourism Website has just been refitted to match the new EH Tourism look and feel. We have added over 40 new Gulf Islands parks and trails. We have provided updated text to every Gulf Island page. We added over 375 new pictures to the Gulf Islands Photo Gallery. We added some new pages with information on some of the top Gulf Island activities as well.
The Gulf Islands is one of the more beautiful vacation destinations in Western Canada. Until my first visit to all the islands I was very naive of what they had to offer me. Growing up on Vancouver Island, the only island I visited as a youth was Saltspring Island.
Now that I have visited every Gulf Island on the west coast many times over I can say I am very impressed. There are so many things to see right in our backyard. There are First Nation Totem Poles and shell middens. There are amazing sandy beaches, mountain viewpoints, secluded coves, rocky points, picnic sites, marine parks and hiking trails.
Anybody who knows me well knows my taste is different then most. So my favorite Gulf Island destinations are sometimes different than most. Some are drive up access others require hiking a trail. Here are some of my favorites.
The Twin Beach Park to Orlebar Point on Gabriola Island. Ruckle Park on Saltspring Island. Savary Island off the Sunshine Coast. Gulf Islands National Park near Mayne Island. Rebecca Spit on Quadra Island. Pultenay Lighthouse and beach on Malcolm Island.
