    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!

    One other food pleasure along the way was at one of the ferry crossings. The ferryman will cook you some fresh salmon for $20 or a fresh crab for $15. I had the salmon and man that was pretty good too. As he was cooking he was telling us that the week earlier a bear broke into their shed and he drank 6 flats of coke. However, the bear never touched any of the diet coke! Quite ...

    ... It's strange how you miss the simple things in life, like good tea, proper bacon and HP sauce! The garden was lovely with a hot tub on the deck, which we enjoyed sitting in on a rainy Sunday morning. The country lanes leading from the local area were a nice change from the larger highways we had been travelling along on the mainland and reminded us of home, even the weather is very similar, 18c, with sunshine and showers! There are some great cool weather wineries ...

    ... down by our 3.30pm ferry. We drove a loop around the northern part of island, to have a look. It was pretty - rolling hills, farms and forest. We saw some more deer, one was right next to the road and didn't even move when we stopped near it so we got some good photos. We also saw a big stag which was exciting, but he didn't stick around long. By the time we came back down the northeast side of the island the weather had cleared up and it was actually brilliant sunshine. We ...
