Our stay at Seal Bay RV Park in Comox, BC
After Comox we travelled to the north end of Vancouver Island and spent a week at Telegraph Cove.
A week at Telegraph Cove might have been a little long but wow was it beautiful. We enjoyed the views and the one hiking trail that we could find. The small but very informative Whale Museum was a bonus. The highlight however was the absolutely amazing Orca adventure. We followed the pod for about 30 minutes and actually saw them hunt and catch a seal. Once again, nature did not disappoint!
After leaving Telegraph Cove we made our way down south. The drive down to Victoria is 465 km so we made a stop at a winery for the night to break up the drive. Coastal Black Winery just south of Campbell River was our Harvest Host location and we were the only ones there for the night. The wine samples were generous, and the location was perfect.
Then for the next month (July 13-August 13) we parked our home in Fort Victoria at the north end of Victoria. We were here a few years ago in the fall and wanted to see what Victoria offered in the summertime. We also planned on being here figuring that it was a safe bet to get the Covid vaccine. This became a mute point when we got our second shot in Comox and are now fully vaccinated. So, we cycled. We cycled up to Sydney, all around Victoria and out towards Sooke. We visited friends that we have met on the road as well as spent a week with Peter and Dianne when they flew out to see us.
