Guest Post | Beautiful BC (Kerry from First TIme Fancy)

Today I have Kerry from First Time Fancy guest posting. I met Kerry at my first blog meet and greet, but felt as though I knew her long before that from reading her blog. She is super sweet and also SO good at responding to people when they comment on  posts - I love that! Kerry did an amazing job renovating and updating her Toronto home and she has since moved out to B.C. to a new place to apply her project skills! Make sure to check out her blog for all of her latest adventures and projects!

Hi there Interior Groupie readers. I'm Kerry from First Time Fancy, and I'm so happy to be taking over for the lovely Heather today. Normally, I would love to share with you one of the many projects we've worked on for our new rental on the West Coast, however, we haven't really worked on too many projects lately, as we've been far too busy exploring our new surroundings. With that being said, today I wanted to share with you some of the beautiful places we've experienced out here on Canada's West Coast, so why not come and explore with us?...

When we moved back in April, we were anxious to get out and start taking in the sights and first on our list was Whistler. How could it not be? Only about 2 hours from where we were living, it was high on our to-do list, so early one Saturday we packed into the car and made the trek out there. Even with the weather not being the best, the Sea to Sky Highway did not disappoint...

And neither did the sights at Whistler resort, or the marine parks on the drive back home...

Seriously, how did we get so lucky to live somewhere so beautiful!? That's not even the tip of the iceberg, either! We've spent a good amount of time exploring, and showing visitors around Vancouver - visiting Stanley Park, Granville Island, Cypress Mountain and the Vancouver Aquarium (just to name a few places)...

Our favourite adventures are still in the great outdoors, and of course there is a ton of that to see out here. Not too far from home we've taken the time to explore the beautiful town of White Rock, and have only just started to scratch the surface of the majestic Golden Ears Park...

Other adventures have taken us further, like the day we spent out near Hope, visiting Hell's Gate and the Othello Tunnels. Thankfully, the rainy weather will never deter us from exploring somewhere new...

Having the opportunity to live and explore the West Coast is more than we ever expected, but we are loving every second of it! Have you ever visited the West Coast? Where should we go next? What are some of your travel tips for B.C., Alberta and Washington State? I'd love to get some great suggestions from other travellers!
Thanks Heather, for having me stop by and share our travel adventures with your readers! It's always a pleasure to stop by.

Kerry, You have gone to great places, but in the US you need to visit the Gulf Islands, and hit Portland in Oregon {tax free shopping!}
