Coal Harbour to Port Alberni

A last amazing breakfast at the Inn. Another eggs Florentine version this time with bacon, ham and thyme scented tomatoes. The owner is a professional chef and restaurateur in a previous existence and it shows. One funny thing is that some years ago they hosted John Cleese and his wife resulting in much Fawlty Towers hilarity. We were so sorry to leave this lively place.

Today was really about the journey south to Port Alberni. We stopped a couple of times on the way, once in Campbell River and once in Coombs, to see the famous Old Country Store. It’s an Aladdin’s cave of foodie items, but the draw is the grass covered roof upon which some goats live!!!!

Our B&B is in a very rural location, hosted by a Dutch couple who made us very welcome. We arrived at 430. Tomorrow we continue on to Tofino in the far west for a couple of days.
