This was the first time we explored Vancouver Island, back then in 2003 I did not have a digital camera. A decent camera will probably cost about $3,000.00 if not more, I remember buying 1Gigabyte memory chip in early 2004 for more than $100.00. So the images here were shot with 35 mm camera then digitally converted by Costco at that time.
We explored Victoria, Nanaimo, Port Alberni then took the whole day excursion with MV Lady Rose, this was the first time we met Bruce Morton and Celia also known and simply CC, the we went to Ucluelet, what we remember was this was a fishing village and the relentless rain that we had, I think we stayed inside longer than outside. We went as far as Tofino then went back to Qualicum Bay, we spent a few nights in Parksville.
We also took two train excursions, one from Nanaimo to Courtenay with VIA and then Port Alberni Railway. We spent at least two weeks for the whole trip.
