    you covered a lot of ground, was this all in one day? I live in the Cowichan Valley and wondered what route you took on your trip down if you went to French Beach before you got to Port Renfrew..

      Hi Vicki,
      Thanks so much for reading. On this day we were staying in Pedder Bay RV Park and Marina near Sooke. We were driving north to Port Renfrew, making stops along the way. We came to Vancouver Island and landed in Nanaimo. We enjoyed that for a few days, then headed over to Pacific Rim, which we loved. Then back over through Nanaimo and took 18 over to Cowichan River Provincial Park, which we also loved. Then over the mountains through Port Renfrew and down to Pedder Bay. We felt like we had missed so much, we made a day trip back north. You live in a beautiful place in Cowichan Valley. Thank you for your comment. Please make any more contributions about this beautiful Island.

      All the best,
      Greg

        thanks for your reply.. that is indeed a lot of ground. That road to Port Renfrew from Lake Cowichan is very windy, wouldn’t have been much fun pulling a trailer that’s for sure. I’m glad you went back to French Beach and the other beaches. We have lived here for 6 years and still haven’t done the hike to China Beach..

        I thought about another spot you would enjoy if you are still in the Sooke area.. that is Whiffen Spit which is located just outside of Sooke, heading west turn left on Whiffen Spit Road and go through the residential area down to the parking lot at the end of the road. Whiffen Spit is a narrow piece of land that juts out for a good walk. The Strait of Juan De Fuca is on the right and the Sooke inlet is on the left. It’s an interesting walk and if you go all the way there is a lighthouse at the end. The scenery is lovely.

        Vicki,
        That is so nice! Thank you so much for that great recommendation! We will do our best to get there. We are now in Victoria and had a great rainy day at the outstanding Royal BC Museum. We are due to leave Sunday with rain forecast every day, but we will make every effort to get there. Thank you so much Vicki!

    There is so much to see here! We are retired, so we have the time and desire to travel and see. We will be in Victoria for a rainy week, but we had a beautiful day in Butchart Gardens yesterday. There are so many things we have missed, and the whole north part of this beautiful island. I hope we get a chance to return and spend more time. I love Canada. I love British Columbia, and I love Vancouver Island!
