You Don’t Have To Travel Far To Immerse Your Wanderlust…
On Vancouver Island’s West Coast
If it wasn’t for “Wanderlust” many of this worlds beautiful places wouldn’t have been found!
Wanderlust ( and a seat sale) lead me on the Cargo Ship the M.V. Lady Rose one sunny Spring Day for the 9 hr. trip to Bamfield and back to Port Alberni. I’ll never forget the beauty!
Alberni Inlet is a long, narrow inlet in Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada, that stretches from the Pacific Ocean at Barkley Sound (Ucluelet) about 40 kilometres (25 miles) inland terminating at Port Alberni. It was named by the Spanish explorer Francisco de Eliza after Pedro de Alberni, Captain of the First Free Company of Volunteers of Catalonia who was appointed in the Spanish fort in Nootka Sound from 1790 to 1792. The inlet includes traditional territories of the Ucluelet, Pacheedaht and Tseshaht peoples, who are part of the Nuu-chah-nulth. (thank you Wikipedia for this tidbit of info).
