Day 24 – Resupply in Nanaimo

We finally made it to a bank and got some Canadian funds.  We’ve been waiting for a weekday, non-holiday to get our business here done.  So today, Monday, we headed into Nanaimo to pick up our packages, and resupply food and fuel.  Tied up the boats on D dock for about $10 mooring fees, then did a bunch of running around including laundry and the chandelry.  Happened upon a cannon firing ceremony and they let me fire the cannon.  Pretty cool.

Highlight was dinner at the Thirsty Camel, a very cool falafel joint near downtown.  Go there if ever in Nanaimo.  We can’t seem to upload photos from the Vancouver Island libraries, so that is a bummer.  We’ll get them up when we can, though, possibly after the Discovery Islands.

Hi Apryle, looks like my previous comment was removed. I am wondering if you are still interested in touring a salmon farm, please let me know as soon as possible. All the best,
Mary Ellen
