Comox Valley to Port Hardy

After a long 7 hour wait on the side of the road that reminded us a lot about north-western Ontario (brrr) we have finally got to Port Hardy, a very small town on the northern tip of Vancouver Island.
It is so picturesque here-calm ocean bay, distant islands on the horizon covered with fog and beautiful mountain peaks bathing in the evening sun. I promise to post some photos...
Tomorrow we are hoping to catch a 5 am ferry to Prince Rupert the journey that would take us 15 hours to get there.The other amazing thing is that the weather is staying quite unusual for the local climate. It has been very sunny and dry for the last couple of weeks we've been on the island compared to the rain and fog that on the west coast adds up to three meters of precipitation a year!! We are lucky to be able to watch beautiful purple sunsets almost every day!
