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.
Main street building.
There is quite a few old buildings in town.
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.
