Photo’s on 4- Wheels at 80km\hr. and more

Just recently we had to make a tip to Nanaimo, the big city, one hour there and one hour home, fighting the tourists as soon as we get closer to the “trap” spots of Coomb’s Country Market (the one with Goats on the roof),Qualicum,Parksville and Nanoose..

I tried an experiment with my camera, it’s not something new,many family holiday trips have blurry pic’s taken out of the dirt caked windows! So it was my turn.. take as many photo’s as I could through my dirty passenger window,being dog holder,co-pilot and in charge of the sandwiches then trying to keep Buggz from licking the food before handing them over to hubby…….a few pictures are from the #2 Dam in Nanaimo where we go if we have a few extra minutes to pass if we’re early for whatever we’re in town for.

Zooming past Cameron Lake, if you take a good look you can see the few cabins on the other side. The stuff on the left bottom is Hubby’s beard. The lake is like glass.

I took this picture of the big long pasture and basically the view, I never realized until I uploaded these pictures the Giant Elf was in my picture! ” A OK!” or Travelosity??

One of the Big Douglas Fir Tree’s in Cathedral Grove blew over in the last wind storm ( It’s bigger then it looks in the picture). There have been people killed in the past when wind storms have blown over some tree’s.
The beginning of Cameron Lake at 80km/hr, just past the beard…!

The beginning of Collery Dam #2 in Nanaimo The next few snaps are the Dam and it was a strange hue,bright but dull out, the water was like glass,it’s hard to tell what is reflection and what is real. . These Dams(3) are in line to be taken out,( gotten rid of )because they figure they are a risk of collapsing if a large Earthquake happens. It’s such a shame, they were our favorite swimming hole when we lived in Nanaimo.!
