Thanks to Fodorites for suggestions on my two other posts.

We are now coming up with the following itinerary when my wife joins me in mid-August after I do the West Coast Trail hike:

Day 1) She flies to Seattle, I meet her in rental car and spend night in Anacortes.
Day 2) Ferry to Sidney, spend night in Saanichton, near Butchart Gardens
Day 3) Full day tour of Gardens, return same hotel
Day 4) Drive to Ucluelet
Days 5-7) Explore Uclelet / Tofino, options include Wild Pacific Trail, Long Beach, other hiking trails, bear watching, whale watching, aquarium, Tofino botanic gardens.
Day 8) Drive to Victoria
Days 9-11) Explore Victoria, options include Royal BC Museum, bug zoo, maritime museum, Craigdarroch Castle, Parliament Buildings wander harbor, city parks, pubs.
Day 12) Ferry to Seattle, hotel near airport
Day 13) Fly home.

This seems like a reasonable schedule for our travel style and interests, but always willing to hear suggestions. Thanks.
