Vancouver Island

Drove through Seattle and crossed the border into the city of Vancouver. Took a ferry from Horseshoe Bay to visit friends on Bourne Island. Had unseasonably warm weather, warm enough to swim in the ocean. Returned to Horseshoe Bay and took the ferry to Nanaimo and drove to Port Alberni. Drove a rough logging road for 82 km to Bamfield and took a water ferry to the west side. Enjoyed Brady Beach, especially walking at low tide. Had a wonderful boat ride with our hosts and saw humpback whales and unusually large jelly fish. Drove to Campbell River and visited Strathcona Park with snow-covered mountain peaks. Drove to Telegraph Cove and stayed in Port McNeill. Visited Alert Bay with its wonderful totem polls. Drove to Port Hardy and visited Cape Scott Park and San Josef cove. This concluded about 1,100 miles of driving. We then boarded the Northern Expedition for a fifteen-hour cruise to Prince Rupert.
