Bagels with Smoked Salmon, Cream Cheese, Dill & Capers

I have just booked my flights to Canada at the end of July for 2.5 weeks. It has been a long time since I visited Canada, 2 years!  Considering the length of time, I think it's time that I finally finish my draft that's been sitting on my blog for the past 2 years!  Just a simple recipe... well more of a combo "bagels with cream cheese, smoked salmon, fresh dill, capers and lemon juice".  I miss Canadian bagels and salmon, I am already planning on filling a piece of luggage up with them on my return.

It sucks when you book your flights so far in advance, I keep wanting to back but have to remind myself that I am not actually leaving for 2 months....On my trip I am flying from Hong Kong to Vancouver, then getting a quick flight to Comox, which is located on Vancouver Island. I am spending one night with my cousins and then we are going to Denman Island for the August long weekend!  Denman Island is probably favourite place to visit, its so relaxing we all sleep on the balcony almost every night, eat, swim, play tennis, ride bikes and relax. I have been going almost every year since I was born. I stay at my cousins cabins, which are on a large ranch that is split up into a bunch of properties, owned by different families. Every August long weekend, all the families get together and have a barbecue! I am already planning on what to make! 

After the long weekend I am driving down the island to Victoria, to spend the rest of my time with my Nan, Aunts, Cousin and friends. With possibly a trip to Vancouver and Osoyoos! 

And now for some photos of Denman Island, from my last trip!
