We had lunch at the Quay and walked around the nicely laid out walks. For a town of this size this is very relaxing. It was a very nice sunny warm day.

We personally would not go out of our way to see this area but were on our way to Parksville so decided to stop. The view is nice and it is relaxing. A few interesting shops to visit.

Sadly, there seemed little to commend the Harbor area except perhaps the war memorial to the local family that had 7(was it) members who fought in it.

We enjoyed watching the boats and there is alot of cool places to eat and get snacks like ice cream and donuts. The only downfall is a few of them only take cash which we did not have when we visited, but will next time!
