I was born in the Rocky Mountain foothills, 1km above sea level.
Lived 10 years on the high prairies of Saskatchewan.
So when I get to my parents place on VANCOUVER ISLAND, I walk the coast at dawn. With coffee. The scenery is different every day.
BEST is Rathtrevor Beach at dawn.
BEST is when dawn coincides with low tide.
You can wander the ocean bottom nearly a kilometre out into the Straight of Georgia.
