We've arrived on Vancouver Island
We have arrived on Vancouver Island. And the first thing we noticed was the change in weather. We left Horseshoe Bay on the mainland to snow and miserable grey skies and as we docked in Nanaimo we were greeted by Blue skies and mild winds - this is the island for me!! We drove up the coast a bit to Parksville and stayed in a lovely Prov' Park called Rathtrevor right on the seafront. Lovely views and wooded campground - it feels SOooooo good to be back on the road and staying in these sort of places. From here we plan to cycle along a bike trail linking this park with a local Mountain Bike park - get some fresh air and exercise! I think the beach trails are even inspiring enough to get me out of bed in the mornings and go running!
