DAY 24 - Fri Aug 20 2010
Cool night and morning and not too sunny.
We said our goodbyes and were away by 10AM, on our way to catch the 12:45 ferry at Duke Point. We stopped for gas in Nanoose, and found the largest gnome we had every seen !!
We continued on, stopping at the Visitor Centre for Nanaimo, located at Beban Park and House -- beautiful old home now used as a community building. The VIE (Vancouver Island Exhibition) was going on at the park, and we spotted an Airstream inside the fence at the carnival.
We continued on and arrived at Duke Point at 11AM. The ferry is scheduled to leave at 12:45PM. We departed on time and ride was uneventful.
We spotted a 30ft 1970's Internation Airstream heading for the ferry once we were heading towards BC99. Traffic was crazy and when we finally got to our exit for 8 Ave, the police had it closed. We found our way around the closure and made it back to Hazelmere RV Park in Surrey. We found our trailer right where we had left it in storage at the park, and hooked it up and set up on our new spot. Once we got set up, we went out to find something for dinner. We settled on salad, wings and bread. Very good. We settled in for a little cable (yes, cable) tv and bed.
