Island driving

I was in Campbell River for a few days for work, so it feels like forever since I’ve last posted! If you’re not familiar with Vancouver Island, Campbell River is about a three-hour drive north of Victoria on the west coastline of the island. I didn’t have any time to snap pics in Campbell River but today on my leisurely drive home I managed to snag a few of the beautiful 19A highway drive between Campbell River and Courtenay.

This was my first glimpse of the mountains around Courtenay from the roadside: The morning was quite foggy and I thought the barn in the distance shrouded in fog was quite a sight:
I had to turn around and drive back for this one, which featured the fog hanging in a layer before the trees:
And when I got to Courtenay I spied hundreds of geese grazing in the fields:I continued to hug the oceanside drive through Qualicum Beach and Parksville, and then hit the main highway to make up some lost time. A short stop in Chemainus for some Christmas-tree garland that I had ordered at a gallery there a while back, and then I was on the road again to Victoria. It was only two nights away, but it’s still good to be home.

  1. More stunning pictures. The west coast of Canada is definitely on my list of places to visit when I get better. I’d love to see the Rockies too.

  2. Isn’t it beautiful? I highly recommend a visit…and someday I’d like to get to the north island which apparently is quite beautiful as well. Thanks for posting!
