Where I stayed
Jessie Honeyman State Park
Then we decided to visit the beach that our campground is named after, Beverly Beach. This beach runs for miles and miles. We did a bit of beachcombing and saw quite a few rocks with fossilized shells. (Guess all that education in Drumheller has finally paid off.)
Then we packed up Star and we continued driving along the Pacific Coast. Our first stop was Devils Churn. This is another basalt rock formation formed by the waves. A narrow split in the rock funnels the waves to the cliff, causing the water to be forced up like a geyser
After we set up for the night we went into Florence to do the laundry, buy groceries, and eat at Mo's Restaurant. Mo’s claim to fame is 'nationally famous clam chowder’. The restaurant is on a pier and a seal swam past us as we were waiting for our meals. Mo’s chowder was good, and thick, but Greg and I each had the seafood platter and it wasn’t as good as back home. Outside the restaurant there is a signpost with about a half dozen other Florence locations around the globe. Florence, Nova Scotia was on top of the sign post, 3717 miles.
The panoramic views were amazing again today. We saw beautiful beaches, amazing wave action, and drove on cliffside roadways. This road has very frequent viewing areas, day parks, and campgrounds; perfect for any tourist. That is why once again we have not
covered much ground, only 94 km, but I’m not complaining.
