Wondrous Wacky West Coast

I apologize but due to technical problems I haven’t been able to post until now. Have you ever headed out on a trip when it goes wrong before you leave the starting point? Pick me - I did that on Tuesday.

Leaving from a wonderful visit with an old friend, an excellent cook, who by the way, provided an amazing chicken and garlic dish and fresh aspstatus for dinner; including the recipe, I backed up a tad too far exiting the driveway and gave the the car on the road a hug from this Ram Promaster. This caused no damage to Plan B (name of my Van) but some damage on her driver side rear door, I gave the neighbour my information and am waiting for a call. I digress 🤷‍♀️

I’m sure I’ve told you about my travelling partner, Lhamo - my 21 month old ShihTzu/Brussel Griffon.

From Victoria Lhamo and I headed out on Hwy 14 (Pacific Marine Circle Route) and drove 41km on a decent paved road to Sooke and another 70 km to get to Port Renfrew -Pacheedaht Campground. The final 70 km took a lot longer as it was hilly and winding but well worth the views.

Renfrew is a small unincorporated community located on the south shore of Port San Juan, an inlet on the west coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. Port Renfrew has a population of 144 and has been touted as "the Tall Tree Capital of Canada". :Wikipedia.

Our arrival was met with cloudy and cool weather. Lucky I had time to set up because Wednesday the rain started in the afternoon and has not let up. It’s Thursday morning as I write this with Lhamo and I tucked up in down duvet and down jacket.
