Our Province

Canada is the second largest country in the world. Canada has 10 provinces and 3 territories. We live in British Columbia. Here is a short video about our province. It is from Tourism BC and was used to help promote British Columbia and the 2010 Olympic Games.

Here are some of the official symbols of British Columbia:

  1. Hello Mrs Watson and children,

    It’s great to see your excellent site and to be able to chat to you via the blog. Our children are just starting out blogging too and My ICT teacher Mrs Coates informed me that you had exchanged comments. As soon as I looked at your site I was sure that I had been lucky enough to travel close to you during one fantastic family holiday a few years ago. We flew to Vancouver (what a place!), then travelled by ferry to the Sunshine Coast – this was great. We had a house right on the beach for 5 nights and had a wonderful time here before heading off to Squamish and touring BC and further afield – we flew back from Calgary. People were so kind and helpful and the scenery, wildlife etc was brilliant – I know that we would love to come back one day.
    We do have some very small rural school in England – they do a fantastic job for their communities, just as you do.

    Best Wishes,

    Ken Smithson.

    • Dear Mr. Smithson,

      Thank you so much for stopping by our blog and leaving us such a great comment!

      Your holiday sounds like it was wonderful. You were quite close to where we live. You would have had to just gone north a few more hours to get to our little island. We think that we are very lucky to live in such a beautiful place.

      None of us have ever been to England before, but we would all like to visit there one day!

      Thanks again for visiting us 🙂

      Mrs. W and the 2/3’s
