Trip to South Carolina, California and Vancouver Island!

Because we have two children living in America (Charleston SC and San Francisco CA), we have a very good reason to cross the Atlantic every now and again. 
Apart form that, we found out that the early autumn period on Vancouver Island, is the perfect time to do some black bear spotting (meeting!).
So we planned and made a complex but magnificent trip, which completely answered our expectations.
We saw and experienced: Killer whales, salmon, black bear, amazing landscapes, bald eagles, wineries, exotic birds, butterflies and dragonflies, crawfish and anole lizards (eating dragonflies!).

Back home again in Holland, we enjoy the sweet memories and images ;-)
