We woke up to rain this morning but by 10:30 it was just drizzling, but quite a bit cooler out, only about 43F (6C).
We headed north along the Ocean Highway and about 3 minutes after we left the park the sun came out and the sky cleared – bonus!! We drove north to Campbell River and on the way went through Courtney and Comox as well as a lot of little burgs. What a pretty drive and it is so nice along the ocean and bays. The mountains running down the middle of the island were very visible today and at the top the trees were glistening with frost – neat!

We stopped at Salmon Point and there was a really nice RV park right on the ocean with a marina in front, as we drove through I got out my iPod Touch and picked up the internet right away so managed to download my e-mail. It is one of the nicest parks we have seen so far and they advertised winter rates but I have no idea of what they would be.
We stopped in Campbell River for lunch then took the Island Highway back to Qualicum Beach, a much faster trip coming back than going but not nearly as nice!
I am going to walk over to the office and get this posted before it gets dark. A dinner of left overs and a quiet evening is in store. And so ends another great gift of a day and we look forward to another nice day tomorrow.
