Sonora Island: Come for the salmon, stay for the sea lions and orcas - Aug. 22 2012

Salmon, it seems, do not sleep in. Given the choice between a midmorning snack and having a bite just as the sun is rising, they will always opt for an early breakfast. Stay cool in the morning, have a siesta in the afternoon. Makes sense to me. And so our adventure begins before the day has even started.

And when these eco hounds return to their luxurious home base, they'll magically transform into culinary experts and spa denizens.

Sonora Resort, Vancouver Island: The one luxury often lost among travel writers is sleep. We know no time zones, conform to jetlag and rely heavily on eye masks and ear plugs (when possible). The best sleep I had all year, however, was from a room overlooking the natural paradise of Vancouver. Because the resort is seasonal, and only has space for a handful of people at a time, you're instantly family when you arrive this little island. Even the animals are friendly.

Since its new ownership about a decade ago, vast changes were made to showcase this resort to a broader international clientele.
