A Long Beach Day Trip - revisited

From Victoria BC to Long Beach and back. Approximately 626km and over 16hrs adventuring around Vancouver Island.

This is where we ended up... but how did we get there?

It started in the dark of winter, around 6:44am. In the rain.
We made sure to leave early so we could catch sight of the Saanich Peninsula beneath the sunrise from on top of the Malahat.

Not much of a sunrise. Here's a shot of the Victoria International Airport in the rain around dawn.

A few hundred kilometers down the road we changed course west to cross the spine of the island via the Alberni highway.
