January 8 to 14 – yup, still catching up.
We drove up from Victoria, BC up Highway 1 and again, there were some iffy sections of fog and cold. We made it.
Our campsite at Living Forest RV Park just south of Nanaimo, BC
I don’t know how we lucked out, but the estuary was out the back window!
And the sunset…ok…it’s really sunrise and Linda took the photo…this made us very happy.
We went wandering around Nanaimo to find a Nanaimo Bar…Linda found one…or two…or three……..
We also found that there was a cool bird marsh in town called Buttertubs Marsh. A bird sanctuary in the middle of town.
We then checked out the wharf.
Then to hiking at Neck Point Park…there was this bunny…
These beautiful driftwood. This one looked like a whale head from one angle.
A big monster or dinosaur from another.
Sometimes just a big log jam.
Then there were birds – herons – spreading their wings on rocks.
Sculptures spreading their wings too…
Linda’s video at the park.
There were shacks on the island.
And on the spit.
Pierre decided to go wading in the ocean…Good thing Linda thought that rubber boots would be handy on the hike.

On the way out, we found this little door on a tree.
And we opened the door to find really cool little items. What a wonderful idea.
We met up with a wonderful retired co-worker Roy and had a fun time catching up.
More hiking around the campsite and we came across these ornaments hanging from trees.
Kevin and Baxter came to visit us…that was fun.
We went on another hike and this was at the trailhead.
The weather started to change and the mist started. That did not deter us from getting out.
This was a turntable for a swing bridge is what I guess.
Sometimes it’s fun to stay in the trailer as well.
The birds patrolled the sunrise as well.
We also found this wonderful place St. Jeans Fishery. Great Salmon is what we are finding and they are well rated for sustainable fishing.
What fun…now we are off to Campbell River.
