          This is a very nice place! The common room and kitchen are great, many windows, lots of light... in this dark winter weather, I appreciate! Very well located, close to the waterfront, into the art district. Cafes, restaurants nearby, as well as a grocery store at about 10 min walk. If I come back to Nanaimo I will stay here again!

          ... for a little bit. Then mom woke up and I unpacked. I made dinner for my mom and grandparents (Diced chicken and cashew lettuce wraps with steamed rice). My aunt and cousin dropped by, it was so nice to see everyone. I took my mom to work, because we only have one vehicle between the two of us because my car is presently not insured while I am working and living in China.

Years back when the trail was truly wilderness it would have taken some pretty tough hikers to tackle it. I guess we have gotten soft over the years!

          Continuing along the trail you encounter many lookout points where you can see the crashing waves against the rocks. At times you would swear ...
