Cross Canada Trekking - Part 18 [Splooshin' down in the Nanaimo Pod 😧 ]
Writing this post is making me want a Nanaimo bar really badly. Not much exciting that day. We had checked into our little RV park in Nanaimo. It was okay, other than it was another RV park. There are worse places in the world for sure, but there are nicer too. We drove a few clicks to get to the core of Nananimo and walk about in this park and along a pier. And See Nanaimos Pod. During the walk, I took off for a bit on my own and found some random trash fiesta, it was like a discarded car and junk warehouse junkyard. Not sure but it was some type of underground parking is the only thing I could think of, but it must have been from a long time ago because all the cars were in such rough shape - I am talking completely mangled. I am not sure how they all got there is such terrible shape. None of them looked incredibly modern, they may have been sitting there for decades. I would be curious to know more about the story here in this strange derelict trash storage vault.
Not sure if Nanaimo was completely my vibe, I mean we spent about a week there and I still felt like I was recuperating but the sleeps still weren't that great. There was some interesting times though for sure, and we had just landed on Vancouver Island, which some people consider to be a country all of it's own! Somebody told me this and I laughed, and they were like "no! I'm serious - it's like a different place here! plus it's just beautiful!" and they were certainly right about that. There was a lot to see, I as always wish I could have seen a bit more of it. BUT IT IS WHAT IT IS™ Like they like to say. But this is some photos from our first day in Nanaimo on that trip.
