Vancouver Island may not be the driest place in the country, but a little rain has never stopped a real Canadian from having a good time!

That’s what Outdoors Columnist Tricia Edgar discovered when she wrote her story “How to enjoy the rain in British Columbia.”

Edgar: “It’s the rain that grows the huge trees and moss-covered forests of British Columbia’s Pacific shoreline, and it’s the rain that brings salmon upstream to spawn in the colder months.

The rainy season on the coast is a good time to snuggle up with a book and a hot cup of tea, but it’s also a time to enjoy the weather. Yes, storm watching, surfing, fishing, or those famous long walks on the beach are all excellent rainy-season activities, especially when a warm bath and a book await you indoors.”
