Strathcona Park, Vancouver Island
We eventually docked on Vancouver Island and on our day off, we rented some cars and drove towards the center of the island to visit Strathcona Park.
Along the way, there are many little hikes that take you along various routes of interest. This one in particular was .6 kilometers and took us through the trees to a little waterfall.
Another short trail offered a glimpse of the water...
and opened up to offer gorgeous views from the shoreline of Campbell Lake.
Farther into the park we stopped along a bridge. This is the in-camera panorama my camera pieced together of one direction.
And this was the other. Not a bad feature for my little point and shoot.
Nibbled at a picnic lunch and enjoyed some wine.
Myra falls was another impressive hike.
The scenery was epic.
The boys went swimming in the icy water while we all poked around to explore.
