Canada's west coast is renowned for it's breathtaking beauty and wildlife. In Telegraph Cove and Port Hardy, my husband Rob and I hopped onto whale watching boats as often as we could to experience orcas, humpbacks, dall's porpoise, seals and sea lions. After our time in Telegraph Cove we spent a lovely week in Victoria, where the wildlife wasn't hard to find. In Victoria's Oak Bay, we were welcomed by a family of otters. And the deer were so plentiful in the urban areas, they were like living lawn ornaments!
