Oceanside Drive

The last couple of days we've been on leisurely drive down Vancouver Island's eastern coast. Starting a little south of Port Hardy to Parksville (where we're camped tonight) this area is a prime summer vacation area for Canadians, from the bigger island towns to the south and Vancouver on the mainland. The "season" is over (no crowds) but we've lucked into some great weather, 65 and sunny - we even managed a ice cream stop today, which is essential to any smooth running expedition.

 

Then a lunch stop in Cumberland.
