    Enjoy The Wild Life...Bald Eagles

    by canuck68 Written Feb 13, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Most of Canada's breeding population of bald eagles is found in B.C. Many eagles summer on the B.C. coast and Vancouver Island. Of course bald eagles are not really bald but are
    "white headed."
    The same mates are kept for life.

    Take a boat trip down the Alberni Canal

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Alberni Canal extends some 50 km from the Pacific Ocean.

    Uchucklesaht Inlet, a side arm of Alberni Inlet nearbye the Pacific Rim National Park (Broken Group Islands) offers good fishing and wonderful scenery. See photo below. It is possible to hire one of the many charters in the Alberni area. Henderson Lake is right there and has the highest rainfall in the world.

    North Island College is situated in a wooded area right near our sports fields and track.

    The college offers academic and technical courses and also has a popular programme called Elder College. This Elder College offers a series of courses that are of special interest to seniors.

    The classes are well attended and have good instructors.

    Take a Walk or Jog

    by canuck68 Written Nov 13, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We have a very nice track that is quite well used. The setting is great as when walking or jogging on the track you can see the mountains, look down toward the canal and get a general overview of Port Alberni.
    The track is all weather so no excuses if it rains. The center grass is used for soccer and football games and track field events.

    The track is well lit at night which is particularly nice on a warm evening as you can wait until later to do your walk or run. Although I have never heard of any negative incidents with people walking or running at night, I don't think it is wise to do it alone.

    On our beautiful Somass River pictured below, you can rent a boat to just sightsee or go down the Alberni Canal and fish. Charters are available.
