I came out to Vancouver for the first time in December 1978. I flew here that time and the plan was to fly back but I refunded the return ticket and opted to take the train back to Toronto and home from there. The above photo was scanned from one of the many colour slides taken on that trip on Agfachrome slide film. This image shows a view of Vancouver Island from the plane as we were approaching the airport. The plane came north from the BC lower mainland, then over Georgia Strait before heading south to the airport for the final approach. I returned home to Ontario by train in January 1979. There will be some more photos later after they've been scanned. Meantime, enjoy this one! - V
