comox, the strait of georgia and powell river.
10 aug

we make tracks back on highway 4 with a side trip through ucluelet. we hit port alberni and it is getting friggin hot again. we get back onto hw 1 and head north to comox.

as usual, we end up stuck between ferry crossing so we head back to tour the canadian forces base at comox. we try to find some evidence of the Canadian forces at comox. is fruitless.  however, we manage find a bar at the end of the runway where we spend the next couple of hours/beers. yet again l wish l had not forgotten my 440 sqn zappers....

at the appointed hour we board the ferry to powell river and then find the bar on the ferry.

the drive from powell river to a campground is gratefully short. tents are pitched at the ground and we drag some 'borrowed' lawn chairs and beers to a clearing overlooking the georgia strait and proceed to watch the beginning of the perseid meteor shower...or fireflies. whatever. it was cool. we drank beers and solved the universe's problems yet again.    

and then we head home
