Sunday Drive with pictures for Alice to steal

Well the last few days havn't been to great weather wise so it was a nice surprise to wake up to sunshine today. Patty asked me what I'd like to do and I said what about driving to Coombs and to Parksville. Her oldest son Albert has been staying with us for a while but is heading back to Merrit this week as he has a job waiting for him. He has never been to Parksville and I thought he might like to see it. Ben had decided to stay home so the 3 of us got ready and left. We drove to Parksville first and went for a walk on the beach where Patty and I collected a few shells. It was a bit cool but pretty sunny. We wondered around for a bit then we stopped to take a few pictures.

Next we headed to Coombs but then I decided we should go to Cathedral Grove to show Albert the huge Cedar trees. We had to pass the Coombs Market and noticed it was closed for the winter (January and february). We drove on pass to Cathral Grove where we walked around the short trails that wind through the trees. Again we stopped here and there for some picture taking. It did start to rain a wee bit but nobody was complaining.

After spending some time there we headed for some place to eat but again I decided to make another pit stop. We stopped at a place called Little Qaulicum Falls where we again had to take a trail through the woods to a river and then eventually we reached the Falls. As usual I took the time to snap a few photos.

The sun was shining again and the walk was nice but now we were starving so we hopped into the car and headed into Qaulicum Beach to find a place to eat. We stopped at a little place right on the Ocean and sat next to the window with a beautifull view overlooking the water. We all pigged out on fish and chips and then headed home. It was a great day to be outside and I'm glad we got out and enjoyed it.
