2018 BRBC - (Brits 'round BC) Tour - Days one and two

 

 
Collecting cars at 08:30 at Gorge Park on Monday morning









Linda has to apply make-up (or sunscreen) to Dave Harris



Coffee supplied to those who need another morning "fix"



Drive from Sooke to Port Renfrew on the Pacific Coast HWY 14, then turn off before Port Renfrew
on the Pacific Marine Rd to Cowichan Lake.

Turn off at Port Renfrew

Pit Stop after the turn off



Stop at the Sitka Spruce along the way. The San Juan Spruce: Canada's largest Sitka Spruce.
This massive building size tree is Canada's largest spruce tree when measured by wood volume
(333 cubic meters). You can see the 62.5 meter top of it from the bridge as you cross the river. 
It is an area where other large Sitka Spruce can be seen poking up like islands in the sea of
second growth around them.











Size matters

Cars by the side of the road at the Sitka Spruce



It's a Triumph - needs a screwdriver adjustment

Arrived in Lake Cowichan - at the Railway Museum and lunch.  Now onward to Parksville for Dinne

After a much needed sleep, the next morning (Tuesday) breakfast also arranged by Al Ramsay, was at
the Memorial Golf Course in Qualicum Beach at 09:30. Magnificent view of the ocean.



Seems like all we do is drive and eat!

































After breakfast a tour of Bill & Rossie Whitehead's magnificent gardens in Qualicum Beach













Now the other garden tour at the home of David & Louise Kelsey in Qualicum Beach















Lunch at the Fanny Bay Inn, near Bowser (more Drive & Eat!)

After this the tour stayed over in Courtenay to catch the ferry the next morning
to Powell River and onwards. This concluded the Central Island Brach's stage.
A big THANK YOU to Al Ramsay and Bob Thompson for all their hard work
arranging the CIB portion of the tour.
