We stopped in Port Hardy for a mandatory provisioning trip, knowing that the grocery store here would be our last for awhile. We’re only a few days away from rounding Cape Scott and turning south to explore the rugged Pacific coast of Vancouver Island.
There’s really not much else to say. The town was a little depressing, the wi-fi at the marina was down (indefinitely) and the shabby machines at the laundromat ate my loonies*. But the people were friendly, we managed to find a wi-fi hotspot in a scrapbooking shop (of course) and, above all else, Aaron’s hankering for fast food was quelled with lunch at the A&W.
*Canadians call their dollar coins “loonies" (because there’s a loon on one side of the coin) and their two dollar coins “twonies” (because it’s cute).
