Tour Day #4 Canada

Tour Day #4 in Port Alberni, BC

It is another sunny beautiful day. Up and had a buffet breakfast at 0730. We leave at 1020 to go to the train station. We take the Alberni Pacific Railway on a 100 year old steam engine for 30 minutes up to the McLean Mill.

The mill is a restored steam driven sawmill and is still in operation. It was very interesting and reminded me of when Dad took me through the Meadow Valley Mill when it was still operating.

We get back on the train and go to C & W Estate Winery and get off to do wine tasting. Then it is back to the hotel for dinner and to bed. It will be an early morning tomorrow getting up at 5:00.
