Summer finally has arrived in Vancouver with temperatures near 30 °C. It feels like the only place to stay sane is in the pool, beach or anywhere with air conditioning running 24/7. It is also this time of year that much more special in BC. It is really having a vacation at home. It is a time to find somewhere local to getaway: Vancouver Island, Tofino, Summerland, or the Okanagan for some tasty wines. But while we plan our mini-staycation, here are some good ol’ internet stuff!
