Remember that amazing place we went last year on our anniversary...well I really wanted to go again this year – being the sentimental sap that I am – but none of my schemes worked out. Flying down to Ojai for a short stay was just a little too ridiculous to make happen. But believe me, I tried my hardest, and David even humored me for a couple days while I attempted to figure out a way. Finally after all my sentimental daydreams had failed, I gave in and decided I would have to settle for somewhere local, and boy did I end up on top!
We decided to finally go check out British Columbia – something we had been meaning to do since we moved to Oregon. The border is only a 5 hour drive from Portland! I don't know why it took us so long to finally make the journey.
We scoured AirBnB for a cool and affordable place to stay and ended up choosing a cute little back-house in Steveston, Richmond, BC – 40 minutes south of Vancouver (known for being the setting of Storybrooke from the hit ABC series "Once Upon A Time").
The trip was amazing! We had three days of great weather, not even a little rain – it was beautiful!
Here are some of the gems we discovered on our short weekend trip through British Columbia:
Rocanini Coffee Roasters in Steveston
The Steveston Harbor and Fisherman's Wharf (with a fresh fish market)
