We left Lund and took the Powell River ferry to Comox on Vancouver Island. Along the way we crossed paths with a few Orcas. We arrived fairly late so we found a campsite on Comox Lake and called Nat's old schoolmate Dave Damery who has settled in Comox. He came out for a short visit and picked us up the next morning for a grand tour of the area. We went up Mount Washington and all over Courteney/Comox. It looks like a great place to live with ocean and mountains surrounding a fertile valley. Dave and his wife Allison with their boys Carson (7) and Luke (5) drove us back out to the campsite where we feasted on fire roasted hotdogs and salad. Thanks for treating us so well on such short notice!
After packing up we had lunch with Ali (Clark) Murray and her two kids, Thai (5) and Amber (3) at the Atlas Cafe. Ali's husband, Lee, is a commercial fisherman and was out to sea. It was nice to catch up after so many years.
