Sep 13, 2016 - Salmon Point RV Park

It is now 0701 and the sun has just risen over the mountains on the mainland of western British Columbia to shine on the eastern edge of Vancouver Island and the Salomon Point RV Park. A boat just left the Salmon Point Harbor and is heading south to presumably fish for salmon. The water is calm and the wind is also very calm. The guided fishing trip we had signed up for on Sunday at the Salmon Point office did not come through yesterday. The guide did not want to go out Sunday morning due to the wind and it was my understanding that the...

Sep 11, 2016 - Salmon Point RV Resort

September 8 We left the campground in Issaquah around 1100 and drove the 50 miles to the Tulalip Resort Casino in Marysville, Washington. The weather was overcast but we did not encounter any rain and by the afternoon the weather was clear and the temperature was very comfortable. After arriving at the Casino we called our friends and we made arrangements for our friends to meet us at the casino parking lot. We would then travel to the Noble Chinese Restaurant where we would have a meal that we would consider to be a lunner (combination...

Aug 30, 2016 - Port Hardy to Campbell River, BC

August 30, 2016 Raining and more rain projected for the rest of the week on Vancouver Island. Went into Port Hardy (population 4,000) where Bob has salmon fished with his buddies for 25 years or more. Had breakfast at the Market which was tasty and had free Wi-Fi, always a plus. We then went to see his friend Darryl’s new houseboat that he just used for the first season this year! Very nice! Off to Campbell River. Our first stop was Port McNeill (population 2,600 and also on the coast) to see the world’s largest burls. It was just amazing...

Jul 27, 2016 - The Way Home

We spent a quiet night at Chief Will-yums Campsite in 150 Mile. The next morning we took a leisurely drive back down Highway 97. We stopped in Clinton to wander through several interesting antique shops. The first one was the most interesting. It had more authentic antiques, jewelery, furniture, paintings etc. After this we had lunch at Clinton's Centennial Park. Centennial Park is a beautiful green space with lots of green grass, lined with huge trees and a few picnic table. It is more or less in the center of town. After lunch on this...

Jun 10, 2016 - Campbell River

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD Our friends on Quadra Island told us not to miss seeing the Museum in Campbell River. They said it’s considered the third best museum in all of British Columbia (after the Royal BC Museum and The Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia). We took their advice and were really glad that we did. It was particularly good advice because we encountered the only showers of our whole 10-day trip. The museum is rather small; but what it lacks in space it makes up for in quality. Their displays of First...

Jun 7, 2016 - Storey Creek Golf Club

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD It’s just a two-hour drive from Chemanius to the Storey Creek Golf Course, just south of Campbell River. There are so many scenic places to stop along the way, but we decided we wanted to get an early start on our 9 holes of golf, so we just whizzed along and arrived in time for a late breakfast at the course itself. The waitress was particularly friendly and welcoming, it was clear we were not regular players there. The weather was much warmer than we are used to in Victoria, so we welcomed the shady trees...

May 22, 2016 - Victoria Day Potluck

We received an invitation from Brown’s Bay Resort to attend their Victoria Day Potluck. This is a special three-day holiday for them. The potluck was held at the beautiful clubhouse. It was one of the nicest potlucks we have ever attended. They had tables full of BBQ chicken with every kind of side and dessert you can think of. The chicken was provided by the campground, we all provided the sides. It was incredible! The clubhouse has a huge deck outside with all sorts of fish and mermaid carving, one even looks like bigfoot. People were...

May 20, 2016 - mid island

Whenever a ship travels north from the Pacific coast toward Alaska, its route takes advantage of the protection provided by the inland passage, a protected area of islands along the shore. The first time we went to Alaska, we put our trailer on the Alaska ferry and fell in love with the gorgeous wild scenery so close to use on both sides that it felt like we could touch it. It took us two days to traverse this calm area. People who are afraid that they will be seasick, find this placid passage a joy. We are camped across the street from...

May 19, 2016 - Dungeness Crabs

We visited Brown’s Bay Marina today, we booked a three-hour tour on the Coastal Taxi for Saturday. The three-hour tour reminded me of Gilligan’s Island, I hope this one does not turn out that way. We explored the awesome marina before having dinner at the Narrows Floating Restaurant. We saw a couple of seals playing in the water, I got a couple of pictures to add, nothing special, you can at least tell they are seals. We enjoyed our meal and the incredible view. The completely newly refurbished floating restaurant was purchased in 1987 as a...

May 17, 2016 - Discovery Fishing Pier & More

We have been busy checking out the fishing places around Campbell River. We have a great spot right in the campground, it is totally equipped with a fish cleaning area, a huge net to pull them in with and more. We also drove about 20 miles to town and checked out the Discovery Pier in Campbell River. It is awesome!!! You can even buy the fishing license for a day there. I am hoping Jerry catches us some fresh salmon and cod for the freezer. Discovery Pier is Canada’s first saltwater fishing pier. It extends 150 feet from the shore, is 600...

May 8, 2016 - Happy Mother's Day!

I hope all moms have a wonderful Mother’s Day. I am blessed with two wonderful children who shower me with love and gifts each year. We were surprised with much better Wi-Fi than expected when we arrived in Campbell River. We got a great spot right on the ocean with incredible views of the inside passage. We have been watching the ships go by. Two cruise ships passed right in front of our RV last night, they had so many lights they looked like Christmas lights floating on the water. We have not seen any whales yet, our neighbors did say...

Apr 3, 2016 - Campbell River & Fishing

We had another “WOWSER” day exploring Vancouver Island. We finished the rest of the 19 A Scenic Drive ending up in Campbell River, BC. Campbell River is located on the west coast of British Columbia on Vancouver Island, Canada. The waterfront community is located on the shores of the Discovery Passage surrounded by islands, islets, and amazing ocean scenery. The waterfront is decorated with marinas, boats, tour companies, shops, parks, homes and pebbled beaches. From the shore one can watch sailboats, fishing vessels, cargo ships and cruise...
