John and Gina's - A Little Piece of Heaven

This is a shot up from the river to their house and sauna

We are parked at our friends John and Gina’s place near Nanaimo, BC. They have a beautiful spot along the Nanaimo River complete with a fantastic log home and a cabin that they have set up as a Bed and Breakfast. If you are ever in the area and looking for a nice place to stay this is the location for you. The cabin sleeps six with a queen sized bed and a couple of hide-a-beds and includes washer, dryer and a fully equipped kitchen, just a short 150 foot walk from the river bank. You can doze off in the afternoon sun listening the sound of water rushing through the rocks below. In the summer this is apparently a pretty popular spot with the locals for an afternoon dip in the cooling waters.

Today we did a little running around and got a few groceries at the new Country Foods store. As well as making the required trip to Walmart also. I needed to pick up a telephone to work with our MagicJack and an extension for all the many things we plug in while driving. Other than that it was a day for sitting on the deck of John and Gina’s and enjoying the countryside.

Here is the view up the Nanaimo River towards the trestles

Thought this might have been Penny from Lake Conroe
