Destination: Port McNeill, BC 
 

If you remember from our last blog post http://goo.gl/mGfoH7, we started at the northern tip of Vancouver Island in Port Hardy, BC. We'll continue the journey heading south, on the east side of the Island.

Great description and recommendations for visitors thinking about traveling to Port McNeill on the north end of Vancouver Island - absolutely worth the trip! If you are interested in marine wildlife viewing during the summer season, Port McNeill is a perfect base. Mackay's Whale Watching departs from the Harbour, if you choose Alder Bay for your stay Seasmoke Whale Watching (aboard a 40' wooden sailboat) will pick you up right from their dock, or head to Telegraph Cove (40 minutes from Port McNeill, 20 minutes from Alder Bay) where Stubbs Island Whale Watching has two or three daily departures depending on the time of year. Another interesting note is the ferry that services Alert Bay also services the community of Sointula on Malcolm Island, another great destination! If you are planning a trip there are a couple of websites you may want to visit - www.vancouverislandnorth.ca and www.gonorthisland.com. Happy travels!

Thank you for sharing the destination of Port Hardy with your visitors. This lovely little community sits on the edge of Hardy Bay and is surrounded by wilderness. Lots of opportunities to walk in the woods, sit at the edge of the ocean, and get back to nature. This post provides a good overview of activities and RV sites. If you are interested in finding out more about Port Hardy and the north end of Vancouver Island www.vancouverislandnorth.ca or www.gonorthisland.com are a couple of good resources. Happy travels!

Circle Lake Erie in an RV 
 

Nothing beats the freedom of being behind the wheel of an RV, the wind at your back and the excitement of the road ahead. For me, it’s all about spontaneity, about making decisions on the fly and knowing that wherever the road ahead takes me, I’ll have a comfortable bed to sleep in at night. Such was a recent trip I took exploring the shores of Lake Erie – nearly two weeks of blissful solitude with only a vague travel plan in mind and the freedom to wake up each morning, not knowing what the day would bring.

Cookin’ over the campfire 
 

I know, I know, at first thought you’re probably thinking to yourself “Cook over a fire?! That seems complicated and time consuming…especially when I have a fully-functional kitchen inside my cozy CanaDream RV!” Don’t panic yet. I’m about to walk you through the simple 4-step process of what’s called “foil pack cooking” and by the time you’re done reading this blog post you’ll be wondering why you haven’t taken advantage of campfire cookin’ on all of your past RV vacations.

The camp fire experience sounds nostalgic and I love the experience but the reality is that summer fire burning restrictions makes this a dream. What is also a reality is that synthetics in the engine and drive train reduce operation and maintenance expenses and anxiety. RH

We roasted wieners and marshmallows on an April camping trip a few years ago. The first time I had done that in years. The kids loved it, and were quick to improvize "smores" using bread and chocolate. We tried campfire coffee, too, but the Melitta in the RV was easier to use. :-)

The Museum of Anthropology was a highlight. Our overseas guests especially loved the totem poles, Bill Reid sculptures and enormity of the international collections. I agree that Granville Island was a great starting point to explore the city around False Creek to Yaletown and beyond. There are so many great restaurants around the city to please every taste, too. Most of the tourists we spoke too did not leave enough time to explore Vancouver.
