I am planning a trip to British Columbia, including Vancouver, Whistler, etc. I would like to spend a few days either on Salt Spring Island or Orcas Island before arriving in Seattle for a convention. About fifteen years ago I spent a delightful three days on Orcas. It would be great to return there, but then maybe I would be missing a wonderful experience exploring Salt Spring Island. Can anyone tell me how the islands differ and which one offers the most in the way of tranquility and scenic beauty. Would I be disappointed in Salt Spring after enjoying Orcas so much?? Maybe there are other options that I haven't even considered for this trip. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
