Our second child was born in late 2007, so travel was somewhat limited through the summer, but we did all make an extended trip to Vancouver and Vancouver Island, travelling from north to south and out to the west coast, where we all enjoyed a three-night stay at the Wickaninnish Inn, one of my favourite lodgings in all of Canada. I also made solo trips through the Central region, the Kootenays, and the Okanagan Valley.

The 8th edition of Moon British Columbia and the 4th edition of Moon Vancouver and Victoria were released in May 2008, along with new edition of Moon San Juan Islands. The San Juan book is authored by Don Pitcher, but I share Victoria and Southern Gulf Islands content. For information about these books, visit moon.com.
