Protection Island, BC April 28, 2022

We wanted to visit Dinghy Dock Pub on Protection Island. They are seasonal floating pub open Thursdays thru Sundays 11:30am – 9pm. We’re almost leaving Nanaimo so today was the day.

The ferry, is a little one not run by BC Ferries. It is a 10m ride. We took a quick walk then returned to the pub 🙂

That done, it’s time to walk the island…. Gotta love the real estate agent who secures the domain name.

There are some super nice homes then there are the others. It is a little junky.

Spotted this deer, thought it was a statue then it moved. How did they get on the island?

The beach, accessible when it’s not high tide

This is the beach access that is no more

Need the mileages

Allan with “Boo’s” cousin

Wouldn’t you love a plane parked on the side of your home?

Hum, jokers on the island…

When arriving by you own vessel, you will likely enter here…

Skies over Nanaimo look a little mean

Well, that was close!

Our return ferry trip from Protection Island was interesting. There were too many people, we were there early, missing the previous ferry by 5 minutes so made it on. T

he Captain assured the remaining passengers she would be back as quickly as she could. Pulling into the Nanaimo dock, a fellow passenger says “FIRE” , smoke was beginning to billow.

The Captain asked we all quickly disembark, we were all happy too.

We felt bad for the people waiting both in Nanaimo and PI.

We hung around for a bit, the ferry wasn’t going nor did the other ferry that was in PI come. Poor stuck people, for once it wasn’t us stuck! And, we made it almost home before the rain started.

Home safe and sound!!

Most of April 2022

April 12, 2022 Goodbye Rondalyn! 6 long, cold, rainy, snowy, did I mention rainy but still filled with fun and many adventures months Bailey is motoring again!

First fuel! Think we both had near heart failure with the per litre price, 239.9. Had to authorize the pump 3 times to get satisfy Bailey’s thirst.

No one ever said RVing was for the faint off heart so off we go…

Oh my, we did not sign up for snow. What were we thinking heading north??

No snow on the ground here 🙂 Site 41

This is us, here

A tree welcome! It’s happy to see us!!

Just steps from the beautiful Straight of Georgia

Our first of many fires in the pavilion. You are not permitted to have fires on your site but fine to have in the pavilion and Cape Lazo supplies the wood!

April 13th our first trip to Comox. We approve!

April 14th A walk on the beach

Walk deserves rewards. Spot them ??

April 15th A little bit of a scare… Arrived at North Island Hospital at 1130a left at 555p What a day!!

All’s good even got to “duck”! No, that’s not BOB, just a close relative

Good night

April 16th – In coming, it’s a big one

April 20th Day 1 of the Snowbird practices consisted of four planes. They come to Comox every year to practice before heading to the various air shows they participate in.

April 21st Rainy, rainy day but who cares when you start the day with a delicious breakfast followed by a campfire in the Pavilion

Pesto Eggs Delish

Fire time is all the time

April 22nd This fellow got a “bird’s eye view”

So fun watching them practice and SO loud!

There they go, end of another session

April 23rd Good morning Comox!

Birds are not happy with the weather change

Here they are and there they go!

Fire time!

April 24th Meet the neighbours. Kind of quiet, love them

More birds, more fires. Snowbirds were out too, thought you saw enough of those photos, fires however never enough. 🙂

I thought the coffee pot was leaking. Would have been a cheaper fix. Always fun, not really. A leak from ????

Apr 26th First 2 photos leaving Comox, 3rd Ladysmith

For those of you following the demise of the ship today’s photos after being out of Nanaimo for 2 weeks.

Much liked reward after our Nanaimo harbour walk

End of January 2022

Well silly me!   I had this done then didn’t publish.  A little late but it was fun for me to relive the end of January 🙂   February & March’s adventures are posted on my FB page so if you aren’t already a friend send me a FB request.   

Jan 16th – Fun trail, we didn’t get lost for a change…

Jan 28th – Woohoo Allan WON!! Worth the Nanaimo Frosty Stepping Challenge.  Much fun, and we go to parks we would not have gone to. 12 locations (all Parks within Nanaimo), 12 clues for the location. Once there had to find a QR code which gives you a word. Once you have all 12 words, unscramble them to find the correct phrase. My guess was “PARKS RECREATION AND CULTURE LAUNCH ACTIVATE 2022 WITH OUR PARTY ON JAN 1ST” we were then placed in a draw and Allan won. Woohoo. Allan is with Deborah Beck with Nanaimo Parks Recreation and Culture.
