    ... here are not like those at home. They are really rocky with only small patches of 'sand' and littered with drift wood (read logs). It was the same around Victoria's coastline and harbours. Apparently people here tend to go to the beach to sit and relax in the sun, not so much for a swim. From here we cruised inland a bit and found Englishman River Falls and Provincial Park where we went for an easy walk through old growth forest to some ...

    ... famous Combs Market, with the goats on the roof, yes - goats living on the roof! We wanted to try the pulled pork that was often on menus, so today it was – to order the pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw. Delicious. The market itself was fun to walk through.

We were both standing there in amazement at what we'd just seen when the 'something' surfaced, swam over to the riverbank and walked out - it ...

    We had a leisurely morning as we didn't have to check-out of the campsite until 11am and we didn't have a long drive. After a lovely morning we all hit the road heading towards Coombs and Parksville.

    Lynn and Steve were going to follow us most of the way, but we move a little slow sometimes (depending on the kids) and they needed to get back to Gabriola, so we parted ways after lunch in Port Alberni.
