Dreaming of the West Coast
I have never had the opportunity of visiting the West Coast of Canada and have often found myself day dreaming of historic places that I would love to explore in British Columbia.From the Kettle Valley Steam Railway of Summerlandm BC to British Columbia Parliament Building of Victoria, BC and finally to Historic Joy Kogawa House in Vancouver, British Columbia. It is an area teeming with beauty and history.
