Day 29 Ladysmith to Parksville

Gwen, a graduate Cordon Blue Chef, fixed breakfast with Karen's spicy Italian free range chicken sausages. She added mushrooms, tomatoes, scrambled eggs, and toast. It was a magnificent meal. 

We left at 10:45AM to make the opening of the Barton & Leier Gallery about a mile up the road from where we stayed. Barton and Leier are both artists and gardeners, friends of David & Gwen, and took good care of us. The garden was unlike any seen before with “room” after room of different plants and art objects. One could easily get lost. 

We then drove about 35 miles to Parksville and camped in the Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park. The beach is very wide (see photo) and long with a beautiful view of the Georgia Strait and coastal mountain range. It was fun to watch the tide come in as it moves very fast along the beach. We had no problem getting space in the overflow area. Since there is no power or water in the main campground it made no difference to us.

Tomorrow we head for Tofino and will stay there for 4 nights.  We have Verizon internet and voice here.
