Well folks I can't believe its Saturday already and that our trip is coming to an end soon. We are back on the mainland tomorrow here. Its today for you! We have managed to see a bit more of the Island and the weather has been wonderful even a bit to hot this afternoon. We are staying at Port Alberni, which was once one of the biggest fish caning places here on. The island, but sadly like so many places it has been closed for years, there is still a harbour with private boats. It's been lovely catching up with members of Charlies family. We have managed to go off and do things by ourselves which has been good!!! No whale watching or wild life today. Just some more scenic photographs!
I couldn't get over the colour of the water, this was up high in the mountains
Yet they haven't had snow over here for two winters so many of the rivers and creeks are very low,
They are getting worried as the weather has been so dry, the risk of fires is very worrying,
And with low waters in these rivers and creeks fighting them is going to be very difficult.
We stopped at this pull in place, I don't what or why folk have put pad locks on this bit of fencing?
Now, it's been a things while we have been here to try and find a " Mountie " for my friend Maureen,
It's not been easy, we really haven't seen more than two Mounties the whole time we have been here, and they have been in their patrol cars. We did call in today to the harbour post, no Mounties there, it was the same at the station at Lake Louise? So when we saw this stand outside the community station, I just had to take a photograph! As I think this is as close to seeing one in full uniform as we will get!
What's the bet we will see some now???
That's all for now, thank you for leaving your lovely comments. I might not be posting again until we are back home, as we are going to be busy, catching up with a friend of Charlies from when he was in the forces also more family members. And then it will be home for us.
