Tall trees of Heart of the Hills Campground. We will remember this place for the high trees, thick brush, and secluded from society’s mad rush. The trees bring with them birds and small ground squirrels, and shade and coolness which we were seeking.
The thick brush hides fellow campers, muffles most noises, and are fun little places for the ground squirrels to scamper around in.
We took one day away from nature and traveled over to Victoria to visit the gardens. We found ourselves in the middle of a large bustling city, with lots of people, lots of commerce, and capital of British Columbia and all that comes with that.
Yes, it was nice to see the gardens, but the other side of the “teeter totter” is the hassle which comes with taking the ferry, driving through big city traffic, and the hustle and bustle of it all. Victoria is a pretty city though…but not for us.
So back to he wilderness we go, and hide out at Klahowya Campground. We could have stayed there longer, but I did not want to get shut out of the next, more popular Mora Campground…
Mora Campground is more popular, but you still feel away from everything…isolated, peace and quiet. And it is close to the ocean, a river, and not too far from a nice Indian Community. And….
…it is deep in the woods too.
This is also where we ran into the most logs along the coast…and I will always wonder what a guy in a white shirt and tie is doing out in the middle of this pile of wood taking pictures for. Take off the tie, roll up the sleeves, and enjoy life man!
And over at La Push we had the first of many wonderful sunsets that we enjoyed along the coast.
When you have a good sunset, you have so many pictures of it that you can’t use them all. The harbor picture was in the posting for that day…but this one here did not make it…along with about a dozen or more which are just as good.
Like this one here too. Oh, they can go on and on…but the memory of each is embedded in my memory. Tomorrow, the rest of the story….
Note: Only two of the above pictures were previously published…there are many many more that remain on the hard-drive…and stored within our memories.
PS: Sandy had a Lemonilla Tillabar today, and she said they were the best lemon ice cream bar she ever had...Arny got a bite, I know how he feels....
