Out of the Fog and into the Sunlight and back again!

A trip to the East side of Vancouver Island can always be a surprise…especially when you live in a valley socked in by thick cold fog….makes you wonder if it’s worth it losing all that Vitamin D !! We lovingly call the mountain climb the “Hump”! Your ears even pop as you near the top!

This post is photo’s of the different type of weather we get on our part of Vancouver Island, going over and coming back all within a few hours of each other! Enjoy!

Two gents spending a beautiful day fishing for trout! The old train trestle on the opposite side of the lake is a neat back drop!

There isn’t much room for the Hwy.(you can see the vehicles and the slope of the cliff) but it is all we have that connects us to the east side!

    1. Life is like that isn’t it…the bunnies were actually fighting… and a lady who had a dog in her car (that was barking at them) got out and started to chase them away just as I was going to take the picture, I wasn’t happy! Oh well….into the fog…lol..
