I went back to my folks’ place in Campbell River last weekend for a few days of golf and some quality family time. To get to Campbell River, which is on Vancouver Island, from Vancouver you take a ride on BC Ferries.
Whenever I take the ferry I pick up a couple of magazines to read while I drink a combination of half hot chocolate and half coffee from the snack bar. On this most recent trip home I bought two magazines, the latest issue of Wired and The Walrus Magazine.
I was very impressed with The Walrus Magazine. It was their “Summer Reading Edition” and there are very few ads – almost every page is full text. I’ve already spent over two hours with the magazine and there’s still a lot for me left to read.
I’ll definitely be picking up The Walrus again.
