I was out visiting my daughter for the first time since she moved there, Vancouver and surrounding areas are sure beautiful.
You guys that live there have it all, hope to get out there soon.

Hop across to New York. Get a cheap flight to Seattle. Have them pick you up at Seatac or rent a car. At least used to be cheap to fly in USA. We did it many times to Hawaii and Los Angeles even though we are a 6 hour drive away from Seattle. Saved loads and saw some of WA state!

pete has mobility challenges that likely prevent him from travel.
I do enjoy the scenery in BC, certainly different than the flat lands and bumpy lands of central Canada.
Nice pictures!

I've lived in BC my whole life (38), Victoria and Vancouver.
I'm now so priced out of the housing market that I'm renting a small room despite being in the military for 14 years.

Beautiful place but we're paying for it out the nose.

Sorry Pete wasn’t aware of your mobility challenge.

She loves it, she fold her place here and said she ain’t coming back lol, truth be told when we got back we started looking at homes, I’m sure you all know that the Real estate market is quite expensive there.

Well….truth be told we are thinking about especially if she gets married and has kids, but the housing market is such that although we have a nice place in Ontario it gets you very little there so we have to look outside of Vanvouver to make it worth it…..time will tell.

Even 4-5 hours east of Vancouver we were kind of staying reasonable but way more people found the Okanagan, cashing in their Lower Mainland bonanza and moving and prices jumped 40-50% in 3 years.

Okanagan would be great but it would be a bit far from where she is, been lookingbat Ladner, Tsawwassen.
