The Abyss & Porto Taco – My Actifit Report Card: August 6 2020

A day on the road with many possible outcomes. Heading back to Port Alberni to use as a jumping point for our vacation time, we stopped at on Hidden Gem of Vancouver Island worth the detour.

The Abyss, Nanaimo Lakes Road

Only about 10 minutes away from the highway and approximately 15 minute walk in this little known landmark caught my attention as soon as hearing about it. It’s not the view which caught my attention but like all others the intrigue of the crevice nicknamed …

The route in is entirely up hill but being short and decently safe terrain I would suggest this even to a low level outdoor adventurist.

I will have a vlog coming after our vacation of this day ✌️

Back in our hometown we stopped to see how mel‘s father is doing with the construction of his house. Looking good so far hoping for completion before the end of summer and wet weather hits.

We tried stopping at our all-time favourite restaurant for some Chinese food but it happen to be closed at the time sending us to discover a great alternative.

After that it was basically just a walk to for Jerry to my childhood playground reminiscing.

Next we head to Tofino ? Stay Safe Out There

Don’t worry we bought bear spray just incase ?
