It has been forever since my last post but no worries, we haven’t dropped off the face of the earth due to a major calamity, we’ve just been very, very busy. This is the visiting phase of our journey and the reason we set out on this trip to begin with. After leaving the Olympic Peninsula in Washington State, we boarded a ferry from Port Angeles to downtown Victoria, BC. The weather was spectacular and snow-capped mountains were visible in every direction. The border crossing upon arrival in Victoria was a breeze and before we knew it we were driving past the Parliament Buildings and the Empress Hotel on our way north to Nanaimo to visit my father.
We spent 6 nights in Nanaimo, parked at the best campground in the area, their driveway! Sadly, it was eventually time to go and we boarded a different ferry from Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay on the BC mainland, where we are moving around visiting more family who live in various regions near Vancouver.
We are planning on staying in this area for approximately another week before our journey continues.
