Our first trip together outside the United States was to Canada, America’s neighbor to the north. Canada is a vast country, stretching from the Atlantic to the Pacific and from the 42nd parallel to the Arctic Circle. These photos are from a trip to eastern Canada in 2004 (when we were very beginning photographers and still using film!), from a visit to the west coast city of Vancouver in 2012, and from travels around Vancouver Island in 2022.

When we visited

August to September 2004, September 2012, July to August 2022

Major stops

Cape Breton Island (Nova Scotia), Montreal, Quebec City, Vancouver City, Vancouver Island (Victoria, Qualicum Beach, Ucluelet, Strathcona Park, Malahat)

Memorable Moment

Seeing pilot whales, seals, and bald eagles while sailing along mountainous, inaccessible coastline near Bay St. Lawrence at the northern tip of Cape Breton Island

Did you know?

Canada has more surface area covered by lakes than any other country in the world.
