Our last breakfast at Harvey House.
|Chestermann's Beach, Tofino|
|Thank you Nicky and Chris|
Our last day in Tofino before we head south to Victoria. The Island is bigger than we thought. Six hours to our next destination. Mind you, there are NO straight roads.
Winding, climbing and descending through lush forests (I will call the forests "Land of the Ewok") Mysteriously thick with green.
|Old Man's Beard|
We couldn't get enough of Cathedral Grove. So, back again.
|Largest Douglas Fir|
After lunch, we did the tourist trail around the town of Chemainus. It is know for the beautiful murals painted on all the buildings throughout the town. Funky and quaint at the same time.
The first recorded export of lumber from Chemainus was on September 25, 1863. Hard labour was the order of the day as the Chinese bull gangs moved the timber on a 2 wheeled cart from the yard to the sailing vessel.
Chemainus is well worth a visit. Small things come in great packages!
So, after a long travel day, we landed in Victoria. Here we will stay a couple of days, as we are coming to the end of our travels to the West Coast of Canada.
An early nite.....we're getting tired.
