Escaping the ordinary (cont’d)

Wherever you go, go with all your heart.

How could one ask for more? Check out what I woke up to on the second day of the journey. Nature’s beauty, peace overflowing all my senses. For a moment, nothing mattered anymore. I was alive and surrounded to my heart’s content by my favourite colour scheme. The serenity was palpable and I could breathe it in, deep in my lungs.

Breakfast over, we took the car once more and drove about 45 mins to the little harbour of Port Hardy.

A sweet little town of about 4000 inhabitants, where I had the best cup of coffee I have ever had. If you are a coffee drinker and happen to pass in the area, be sure to check it out and tell me how you loved it.

This stunning beast of a cash register was part of the Coal Harbour Historical Collection. A small museum filled with artifacts from logging, seaplanes and whaling. The museum was cared for by a very kind and sweet older gentleman. He has devoted his entire life to the caring of this fascinating collection. It felt like a journey back in time.

This is the second installment of my trip on the Vancouver Island North, here is the first one.

How am I doing so far? Would you hire me as your travel guide? No, don’t answer 😉

  1. Nature and beauty are much needed solace and heart balm aren’t they? Thank you so much for sharing these stunners.
    It is many years since I have been able to drink coffee, but I still adore the scent.
    And yes, I would happily travel with you.
