As you leave beautiful Victoria, British Columbia, travelling west on highway 14 you will pass a few points of interest. The town of Sooke is the first and last town before you reach Port Renfrew. Sooke is a good place to purchase your groceries and supplies because Port Renfrew's General Store carries limited stock. After Sooke, the next point of interest is the district of Shirley. On your left hand side you will see Shirley Delicious. If you have the time, it is well worth the visit for a snack or a meal. There are breathless mountain and ocean views along the way to Port Renfrew. Truly a photographer's dream! When you reach Jordan River, you may find yourself stopping to watch the surfers, or hang out on the beach. For all of the die hard hikers, you can hike the Juan de Fuca Trail. 47 km from China Beach all the way along the rugged coastline to Botanical Beach. The drive is mainly forested along the winding highway. The viewing of wildlife on and around Vancouver Island and the Gulf and Discovery Islands of BC offers something for all nature lovers. Whale watching requires little introduction, as British Columbia is well known as one of the places on earth to watch migrating and resident whales feeding, breaching or spy-hopping. The phenomenon of the Autumn salmon spawning draws people from all over the world to the Pacific Northwest to watch schools of salmon return from the sea to lay their roe in their ancestral spawning grounds. Vancouver Island happens to be conveniently located on the Pacific Flyway for the millions of migrating birds that miraculously find their way north and south with the changing of the seasons. Vancouver Island supports black bears, cougars, wolves, elk, deer and many other mammal and bird species, some abundant and others threatened in numbers.
