Today Michael and I took the Pacific Marine Circle Route. It’s about a 160 mile trip that took us to some places we haven’t been before – Sooke, Port Renfrew, Lake Cowichan, then on to Duncan and down to Victoria, BC. It was lovely and very rugged and the best part – I SAW A BEAR! I was so excited I had Michael go back but by that time I only saw the young black bear running off into the forest. So exciting. I wanted to go after it but Michael wouldn’t let me. I was bummed, tho, because I didn’t get any pictures. I had a feeling I would see a bear before we left.
Michael got to see a rock wall he really liked as we were headed out of Victoria.
We stopped at French Beach and walked around. Very nice.
The trip took about five hours and was beautiful. We stopped and got snacks in Port Renfrew.
We also stopped at a couple of the beaches, and at one of the old growth forests. Everything was so beautiful. I’m glad we got to see another part of British Columbia.
There are a lot of blue jays in this part of BC.
Going to hate to leave but also looking forward to another adventure. Coming back to our cave, we saw a bunny in the driveway. He didn’t appear scared and didn’t seem to want to leave. Michael got some pictures of him. Fun.
That was our day. Hope yours was BEARY WONDERFUL!
