BUSY TIME AT THE RALLY

We had a fun week visiting our friends at the Escapees Chapter rally at Seal Bay RV Park near Comox, BC.   I think we had sixteen rigs attending and twelve of them were in the main circle while the other four were adjoining them so great for visiting.  The fire pit and nice lawn were in the center of the circle so very handy for most people.  We had meals together one way or another most evenings.  Some sat around the fire in the evenings and a few of us played cards every night.
We moved to Miracle Beach Provincial Park yesterday and will stay here until next Friday when we will move back to Errington.  Aileen's sister Anne, and John, are parked across from us. Today, the four of us are off to Victoria to attend a tea in honour of Aileen's Cousin Pat's wife Irene's 90th birthday.  We hope to also visit our old friend from the Cluxewe campsite who is now residing in a care facility in Victoria.
John and I went geocaching yesterday afternoon and will likely get out several more times this week.

As is usual at our rallies, we had a couple of meals out


Some of us visited Shelter Point Distillery

Their neat old truck at the entry gate

This is the old mining museum in Cumberland.  Some of us took a walking tour around Cumberland checking out the many interesting small businesses and historic buildings

I led a group to view Elk Falls from the new viewing platform and the suspension bridge

From the suspension bridge.  It was difficult getting a time when someone wasn't making the bridge jiggle.

We had a little dance the first night

Lots of social time around the fire every afternoon and evening
