    on our visit to Victoria about 10 years ago. It was still run by Canadian Pacific then.

    It was between Christmas and New Year's - the only time we can really get away together - and they had an unbelievably cheap winter package made better by lots of freebies, like a free carriage ride and high tea, and the favorable exchange rate.

    There's plenty to do and it's easy to get around. The best thing was that in the middle of winter it was in the 60s and sunny.

    And the ferry rides from Vancouver, BC and back to Anacortes, WA are great too.

    We choose to go to the Moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard. - John F Kennedy
