Nanaimo by Float Plane

Two weeks before I was going to move back to Denmark, I went on a day trip to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island, mostly to try the float planes. I was a nice quiet day with beautiful spring like weather.

Float plane terminal in Coal Harbour.

 

Take-off at Stanley Park.

 

Vancouver Island Ferry.

 

Approach to Nanaimo.

 

Cockpit, there was only one pilot on such a small plane.

 

It was fun to try the float plane, in special the take-off and landing which were quite bouncy.

 

Fishing harbour next to the terminal.

 

Low tide.

 

Main street building.

 

There is quite a few old buildings in town.

 

 

 

Museum alley.

 

Old tower.

 

Lunch time back in the fishing harbour.

 

When I saw this cozy small restaurant in the morning, I already decided lunch had to be here.

 

Nice fish and chips.

 

 

 

Marina along the walk towards the ferry terminal.

 

With a bit of running I barely made it to the planned ferry.

 

Ferry ride back to Vancouver for a different scenery - and save some bucks.

 

Arrival at Horseshoe Bay.
