In Nanaimo we were provided a campsite by Oceanside RV Park. It is a beautiful location and exceptionally well appointed, serviced and maintained, including beach and nature areas.
We had a few days to wait for our next event. The boys spent some time at the library while I arranged for an additional line of signage to be added to the van on each side. SignAge was most gracious and contributed the sign to the cause.
We attended the Vancouver Island Exhibition and enjoyed the horse events and variety of exhibits. Duchess turned on her charm and Shar-Kare Feeds and Pet Supplies donated two bags of her favourite Nutros Senior dog food and large dog biscuits. Thank you.
Unfortunately, the Nanaimo group were unable to meet with us but we did throughly enjoy lunch with Danielle Wittmyer and her delightful daughter.
On our way to Duncan, BC we stopped in at Chemainus, a delightful village focused on artisans and a huge collection of building wall murals. It is well worth the stop.
