For a couple of years we would camp at Dashpoint State Park just south of Seattle on our holidays. The first year, while eating pizzas at the local Godfather's, Princess Diana died. The next year, same Godfather's, John Kennedy died. We decided not to go there anymore. We didn't want to be responsible for any more famous person's death.

Within a ten-minute walk from our home is an historic Chinese Cemetery at Harling Point in Oak Bay – a suburb where Chinese were once not allowed to buy residential property. It is anchored by a rather daunting looking ceremonial altar which looks out onto the Straight of Georgia.
