Beautiful British Columbia

We’re making our way slowly south through “Beautiful British Columbia” as their license plates state. It truly is beautiful, especially with the accent of brilliant fall foliage.

We took a bit of a detour to visit Jane and Richard onboard their yacht High Hopes in Prince Rupert. We met Jane and Richard four years ago in Newfoundland. At that time we said we’d come see them someday and that day finally arrived. We just barely caught them for an brief visit before they went out fishing for a week, but it was fun to see them and trade travel adventure stories.

While in Prince Rupert we toured historic Cow Bay where we enjoyed the absolutely best halibut burger and sweet potato fries EVER at Dollie’s Fish Market.

The cow theme is prevalent here, as you can see.

After a couple of nights boondocking at the marina, we headed over to Port Edward to tour the historic North Pacific Cannery. NPC is unique among the few surviving cannery sites. It was established in 1889 and is the oldest remaining salmon cannery on the West Coast. It ran continuously for almost 100 years. It presented lots of photo ops.
