Thanks to everyone who gave us ideas and recommendations. Butchart Gardens were simply amazing. I'm not a flower show kind of guy, but this place blew me away. We hit most of the tourist spots and ate very well. I saw Tillikum at the Maritime Museum, but Trekka is now in the water. They gave me directions to its marina, but I never found it.
Paul Gartside graciously invited us to visit his shop and was a wonderful host. He has just turned the hull on a 24' cedar on oak gaff cutter. Not surprisingly, it is a piece of art.
