Back on the road we made a brief stop at Port Alberni before continuing on towards Tofino. Suddenly the road was full of Logging Lorries.
Of course, this is Vancouver Island's main industry and now that we had entered the wilderness, we were deep in the heart of its logging industry.
After a good hour of dodging flying woodchips and bits of log in the road, we entered the Pacific ...
... were driving away we kept commenting on how nice they are and how special that was! Yep! Blessed! Then it was on to Port Alberni. What a gorgeous drive! Whoever gave BC the title "Beautiful British Columbia" didn't get it quite right - it's SPECTACULAR British Columbia! Or BREATHTAKING British Columbia! It really is a gorgeous part of the world!
