Before Victoria had a secret, Mary had a problem.

Nineteen year old Mary Phelps Jacob was attending a ball and the dress she wanted to wear looked awful with a corset underneath. So with the help of her French maid Mary fashioned a bra out of handkerchiefs and ribbon.

Mary filed a patent for her brassiere in 1914 and this is when most bra historians (all 3 of them:) agree as the year the modern bra was introduced to society.

Set on Vancouver Island’s west coast is Clayoquot Sound, a wild and wondrous network of offshore islands that comprise thousands of miles of alpine valleys and lush fern gardens, forests, rivers, lakes, and laidback beach towns.

August and early September are the best times to see black bears, many of which visit a Clayoquot resort hayfield to snack on tender shoots and on nearby spawning salmon.

Float in Canada’s Dead Sea
Saskatchewan boasts over 100,000 lakes, but here’s one that is unique in the western hemisphere. About 116km southeast of Saskatoon is a lake that refuses to let anyone drown in it. Little Manitou, located near Watrous, has a mineral density three-times saltier than the ocean. The salt enables swimmers to effortlessly float on their backs, perhaps reading a book as they do so.

From start to finish the area covers only 16 kilometers, so no matter where you stay in Ingonish, you are only minutes away from all recreation and services. Much of the Ingonish area borders the 950 square km Cape Breton Highlands National Park which contains campgrounds, look-offs, picnic sites, beaches and hiking trails.
The area offers both saltwater and freshwater fishing with ocean charters available. The multitude of lakes, ponds and rivers provide excellent salmon and trout fishing from June 1st thru early October.

Hike the West Coast Trail
The trail is open May through September, is 75 km long and takes 5-7 days to hike. The terrain is uneven, and you must be prepared for slippery conditions on muddy trails, wooden surfaces, boulders and rocky shorelines.
