We were deciding where to spend our two days off this week and thought about the Gabriola Campground. We have never camped there before, but with gas prices so high and only two days to play what better way to make the best of our time. We packed up and in less than 1/2 hour we were lounging around in a beautiful forest campsite with a pretty view of the bay. We sunned on the rocks at the water’s edge, hiked the parkland trails, cooked our dinner over an open campfire and fell asleep to the sound of lapping waves and a light ocean breeze. The next day, after a hearty breakfast we decided to head out on an adventure. We walked the hiking trail which brought us up to River Place, hiked down Spruce Avenue and over to Balsam Street where we found our selves at the Gabriola Island Winery. We had an interesting tour of the facility, tasted some wine, bought a gift and continued on our way. Down the hillside to Berry Point Road, with a stop at the local Bakery for a hearty soup and sandwich, we were back at the campgound in time for an afternoon swim. What an excellent adventure!
