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.
