I love Vancouver Island and B.C. There are some AMAZING discoveries here like Horne Lake Caves, The Whale Interpretive Centre, The Royal BC Museum and - of course - Tofino.

What's your favorite activity to do in the winter with your family?

Robin Rivers

We love to take walks in the woods, feed the birds at a local marsh and do wildlife watching along the harbour front. It's an amazingly busy time of year for the animals here on Vancouver Island as many of them overwinter here coming down from Alaska.

What's a great indoor activity for kids that doesn't make a huge mess?

Robin Rivers

We love to wet watercolor. It sounds messy. But, really, the only thing that is wet is the paper and the pictures that come from it are soft, sweet and soothing. My high-strung oldest found this a favorite way to calm down and often asks to do it when she is having trouble relaxing.
