Forgot to mention all manner of wildlife encountered so far.
Of course lots of deer, sheep on the road, one baby black bear, and very large black bear that surprised both of us, especially bullseye!! He came up from the ditch and got startled by Dale's motorcycle and stood up on its hind legs. I saw this action from behind and tried to hit the record button on the Drift camera, but was too busy grabbing a handful of brake as was Dale! Luckily the bear scooted in the opposite direction and not in front of us on the road. This bear easily was taller than us on our bikes when it stood up...sheesh.

Question

Drift HD Ghost video of sheep and traffic. Raw and unedited. Sorry for the length at the beginning and my silly sounds.

Day 3

Short riding day today, about 4 hours, but mother nature gave us extra rain to make up for the shorter ride!
On Vancouver Island now drying out in Chemainus.
To get a similar idea, just put all your motorcycle gear on and jump in a pool and then try to get out as fast as you can.

Keep it comin'...

I'm enjoying the photos, good ride report.
Meanwhile, the rain continues back home! You're having more fun there than we are back here.

Last nights B&B. First for both of us. At Pemberton. Called The Log House B & B.



Yes I know, not exactly roughing it, but after what we rode thru, camping was the last thing we wanted to do.

Went on the Horse Shoe Bay ferry. We both missed the turn off and had to back track a bit. My GPS wouldn't work as the cloud cover and rain was so heavy, the device couldn't lock a reliable signal. Finally cleared off enough we could enjoy the ferry ride.



Mmmm.... comfort food.

I hope the weather gets better for you. Supposed to be get sunny and hot on the weekend.
Looks like you are having fun despite the weather and you will definately like the ferry ride North.
We love riding on the Island. If you happen to travel over to Port Alberni and need a hand with anything, just ask.
Have a safe trip.
