I think that every British Columbian should have two things on their experience bucket list: The first is to witness and capture a Tigh-Na-Mara sunrise and the second is to attend a wine and culinary festival on Vancouver Island. Luckily you can accomplish both if you head over to the 7th Annual Parksville Uncorked this month.
