Driving from Tofino to Victoria is like driving on the Cabot Trail and on the old road from Bridgewater to Peggy’s Cove…well kinda , ok not really but there are so many twists and turns and rug hugging narrow turns. For this girl…it makes me sick, literally. I was so happy to get off the worse stretch from Tofino to Port Alberni. The scenery is absolutely gorgeous and breath taking if you’re not feeling like you want to be sick. lol
We got through that and then stopped in Duncan, The City of Totems. ( That is where my friend Michelle lives) We had a picnic lunch in the park and snapped a few pics and then headed to the Shawinigan Lake area to see the Kinsol Trestle.
The Kinsol Trestle is a wooden railway trestle also known as the Koksilah River Trestle that crosses the Koksilah River.
Completed in 1920, its dimensions measure 144 ft high and 617 ft long, making it the largest wooden trestle in the Commonwealth of Nations, and one of the highest railway trestles in the world. It was very cool to see.
We arrived in Victoria and met my friend Michelle and her husband Peter for drinks, it was so nice to see them. Then we spent the rest of the evening seeing Victoria at Night!
