Thanks dat...I do realize that Victoria is not a day trip. We are thinking that would be an overnight. Salt Spring sounds out. I still think there will be lots to do. I am surprised that there are no hop on hop off tour busses in Seattle in October??? I went to book flights last nigt using FF miles from Us Air and the flights are not available for 2 passengers at the reward level I was looking at. So......bottom line....back to the drawing board.......Any flight suggestions??? LOL

Looks like you will be here for the beer festival:


I haven't gone, so I can't vouch for how fun it is but we do have great microbreweries around here. Also, check the schedule as it comes closer to also see if the big band will be playing at the resort's restaurant (old school dinning and dancing type of evening).

For a suggestion for a scenic drive (possible eagle sighting) if the weather is nice - how about Mt. Baker Hwy before or after visiting Bellingham? Stop at North Forks Brewery / Beer Shrine / Wedding Chapel for pizza or pasta:


For flights - are you looking to just use miles or would JetBlue maybe have cheap tickets?

Beer festival sounds good! Mt. Baker Highway will def be on the list of things to do.

We are using miles and a timeshare exchange. And....we are now booked for both! We will leave VA on WEd. 10/16 and stay Seattle/Portland or somewhere Columbia River until sun 10/20. Then we will go to Blaine and be in the condo until Sat. 10/26. We are really looking forward to this trip as I have always wanted to visit the PNW.

Let the planning/research begin! Be ready for ???'s and thanks for all the help so far!
