My husband and I will be traveling to Seattle, Victoria, and Vancouver in early August. I am in the early planning stages, but I feel that I should get my lodging booked soon, so I'm looking for reactions to my current plan. I'm in my mid fifties, and my husband is in his mid sixties. We enjoy scenic drives, good food and wine, and unique adventures. I enjoy hiking, but it's not my husband's favorite.We both enjoy skiing, but this is a summer trip...

Please offer any suggestions for other stops, restaurants, or lodging. I'm looking for suggestions for days 7 and 8, and opinions on Day 6. Should we stay an extra night in Vancouver to be able to do both Whistler and Grouse Mountain? or...Bainbridge Island? ...or spend a night in Leavenworth? Is Leavenworth too far out of the way?

Seattle/Washington Possibilities – Inn at the Market?

• Day 1 - Pike’s Place Market, Seattle Waterfront, The Space Needle

• Day 2 = Lake Washington Ship Canal/Hiram M. Chittenden Locks, Kerry Park

Victoria, Vancouver Island – Abigail’s Bed and Breakfast?

• Day 3 – Ferry from Anacortes - Explore Victoria

Vancouver Possibilities – L’Hermitage Hotel?

• Day 4 - Ferry to Vancouver (BC Ferries), Stanley Park

• Day 5 - Granville Island Public Market, Enjoy the city

• Day 6 - Grouse Mountain, Capilano Suspension Bridge

or Squamish/Whistler

• Day 7 – Travel from Vancouver to Seattle or other location, Chateau St. Michelle Winery/Woodinville Wine Country

• Day 8 – Seattle or other nearby location, Flight home (11:00 p.m.)
