Campbell River Outing

On the 27th of December, we all set out to have lunch at the top of Mt. Washington. That morning it began raining heavily and I was seriously doubting heading up that way at all. By the time we got half way up the mountain, blankets of snow were around us. That was too much of a match for our front wheel drive mini van. So we turned around and headed out to Campbell River.

Campbell River is about 60 kilometers north of Comox and somewhere that I had never seen before. I guess it's a rather small fishing town and retirement resort which employs people at its local pulp mill. We had a lovely lunch right at the waterfront with a wide choice of seafood dishes to choose from. P and I both opted for some type of salad since we were feeling like we had been fed a bit much over the holidays.

I did manage to take a few wonderful photos of the area. It's so serene and different than Vancouver. The most noticeable difference is that you can bald eagles flying around which is definitely a treat. All in all, the excursion was a welcomed treat and something I really wouldn't see every day on the mainland.
