    ... town of about 10,000 people on the east coast of Vancouver Island about 150km's from Victoria. Apparently the sandcastle capital of the world (at the right time of the year!). We made a few stops on the way for great views across the Strait of Georgia to to Mainland Canada and the snow capped Rocky Mountains. Our main stop, for coffee and cake, was at Nanaimo another harbour city and thriving port. We then made our way to Parksville taking ...

    ... to see 2 of 4 black bear cubs, and quite a few different species of eagles recovering. There are a few animals onsite that won’t ever make it back to the wilderness, like the Bald Eagle with the wing that broke too badly for him to ever fly again, and the bald eagle with the prosthesis beak because he was shot.

    Off to "the island" :)

    ... power at a campground, so we've switched it over to gas to see if that still works. On the campgrounds' website we'd read about hiking a trail that takes you to a spot that's great for sea lion spotting and sometimes even whale watching - the Cable Bay Trail to Dodd Narrows. It said the hike would take about an hour & the trail was 15mins away from the grounds so we thought we'd give that a go today. Well we got 2km into the walk along main roads & hadn't reached ...

    Just by chance, we dropped by the Harbour View seaplane office/terminal that's next to Coal Harbour in Vancouver and they had a good rate on flights to Nanaimo so, never wanting to pass up a new adventure, we booked a couple of tiny seats on one of these floating and flying tin cans. I was really impressed with the whole experience- it was a reminder of what flying used to be before government bureaucrats and airlines turned it ...
