    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!

Next stop to pick up my luggage and recheck it. Unfortunately Air China would not give me a boarding pass for my last connection so I had to haul my luggage to get a boarding pass. After checking my bags onto Victoria I started to head to my gate to wait, I had just over an hour. All of a sudden there was a Starbucks and ...

    ... ladder.

    Although exhausting, the ladders along the trail are extremely helpful as without them you would really have a hard time climbing the cliffs. 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 ...

    ... open air. I'd been advised by many people to take sea sickness tablets, so I'd religiously taken them, as the packet had said an hour before boarding the ferry. As it turned out the crossing was like a mill pond and I probably could have survived without them, the downside to the tablets was I felt so sleepy and heavy headed.
