Day 59: Nanaimo to Campbell River

We don’t call it cheating, just taking advantage of an opportunity. Again today it was raining that miserable cold rain so we accepted a drive to Campbell River from Jesse’s parents. We were staying with them in a place called Painter’s Lodge that is very well known and a destination of its own.

While there we took their free water taxi across to Quadra Island where we had a drink at their sister lodge and enjoyed the view back to Painters Lodge. Although it was a beautiful view, I could only think of how much nicer it would be with clear skies, the mountains in the background and a sunset. We returned in time to enjoy a swim in the heated outdoor pool and some time in the hot tub before going to the pub for dinner.
