  • day we were reading the news and we saw that someone had been able to photograph

  • a black bear because they come to the hatchery to eat some salmon that's right

  • I'm staring off in the distance because there's a seal just bobbing around

  • sticking its head out of the water under it goes again but yeah we're hoping to

  • see black bears yeah that would be our fourth black bear sighting on this whole

  • trips we've had extremely good luck so crossing our fingers that we see another

  • one today yeah and aside from that we want to go to Elk Falls to do a bit of

  • hiking apparently there's a cool suspension bridge there as well that's

  • right and actually within Campbell River there's a nice pier to visit so it's a

  • nice combination of beaches hiking maybe seeing some bears maybe walking along

  • the pier so it should be a really fun day and it's slightly raining at the

  • moment but apparently we're gonna have mostly nice weather this afternoon yeah

  • and we're looking forward to the side hopefully poppin yeah exactly

  • Thank You Vancouver Island what can I tell ya what do you think of miracle Beach so far

  • the the water looks like like clear today it looks like a like a reflection

  • you have clouds off in the sky there's a few ferries we're seeing a few animals

  • beautiful Beach and yeah we're just gonna walk around for a bit

  • after a stop at miracle beach we hopped back in the car and continued to drive

  • up to campbell river after a week at spotting black bears left right and

  • center we had a funny little incident where a fluffy black creature walked

  • across the road and everyone mistakenly yelled bear I wonder how often that

  • happens to this bus

  • once we got into town we checked out some of the murals and browse through

  • antiques at the Trading Post before heading down to the pier

  • well guys we made it to Campbell River and the first place we went to I think

  • it was called a trading post kind of like an antique store but with a

  • little bit of junk thrown in there so Sam found some cards some playing cards

  • or hockey cards from his childhood there were only two bucks so he's like yeah

  • I'm gonna get this so I'm gonna let him show you that little treasure okay so we

  • arrived in Campbell River ever entered what's the first place well the first

  • place we we noticed this this big store this giant antique store it's like a

  • pawn shop antique store slash trading post last trading post it's got

  • everything in their.all use and guys they had something memories from my

  • childhood pack of hockey cards Oh peachy from 1991-92 this is 28 years old guys

  • and these hockey cards inside of there is going to be the most stale piece of

  • gum you're ever gonna see in your whole life to eat fat no but I'm gonna show it

  • to you okay and guys all of my favorite you know hockey players growing up could

  • be in this pack I'm hoping for maybe a Jeremy Roenick or Chris Chelios or Ed

  • Belfour from the Blackhawks or if it's from the Vancouver Canucks which is the

  • most local team I might find Trevor Linden or Pavel Bure in here III

  • don't like them alright let's open it up oh wow mark hunter is the first player I

  • see but guys the the Bubblegum my 28 year old bubblegum right here are you

  • gonna try chewing it I mean no I don't want to go to the hospital today okay

  • let's see who we have Albert Melvin he never became much of a player whoa cam

  • neely that's a local BC boy hall-of-famer

  • right here guys he played for the Vancouver Canucks and the Boston Bruins

  • he's from Comox guys Cox BC he's a he's an island boy in the neighborhood

  • one of the most famous hockey players of all time from from Vancouver Island

  • Marty McSorley he had a pretty long career

  • he's also most known for a vicious incident on ice on ice he hacked a

  • player over the head with a stick Mike Schillinger Jay Miller Oh Michael you

  • none of my favorite players so far Toronto Maple Leafs come on were the

  • Blackhawks Kevin Hatcher had a long career and Mark hunter

  • none of the cards I was hoping for but you know what cam neely made it worth it

  • for two bucks okay I will get one more so next stop now that Sam has his hockey

  • cards on he's feeling happy we are at the discovery fishing pier and well it

  • looks like half fishing vessels and then half sailboats and we also noticed a

  • sign where you can buy fresh seafood oysters scallops clams and we saw signs

  • for smoked salmon as well so we'll see if we find any of that and maybe ice

  • cream I know there's an ice cream shop somewhere here because that's the kind

  • of thing I would be looking for the discovery pier is Canada's first

  • saltwater fishing pier so it's a little piece of history it looks out over the

  • discovery Passage and it's a popular fishing spot the pier stretches out 600

  • feet and is equipped with rod holders bait stands and fish cleaning tables you

  • can even rent fishing rods if you're there between May and October however I

  • was thinking a little less about fishing and a little more about ice cream

  • well caramel on the bottom and the strawberry on top well so we'll get an

  • ice cream time for a little dessert before we eat our lunch we do have

  • sandwiches in the car but I mean there was an ice cream parlor here so we just

  • couldn't resist so we actually got the smallest cone they had this is the kid

  • size if you can believe that with two scoops the regular adult sizes all had

  • three scoops so I got strawberry on top and then we have sea salt caramel for

  • Sam on the bottom so hurry up and he does draw everything you can get yours

  • yeah how's it

  • that afternoon we continue to the Quinsam river hatchery because have I

  • already mentioned that Campbell River is a salmon capital of the world the

  • hatchery has a visitor center with information about the hatchery program

  • in the salmon lifecycle but really I think most of us were there for a chance

  • to spot a black bear fishing

  • well guys we've arrived at our next destination

  • the Quinsam hatchery we got here just in time because apparently they close at

  • 3:30 p.m. we had no idea so we barely got in there's lots of

  • warning signs here about two black bears and there's also a lot of photographers

  • with their massive zoom lenses waiting by the river so apparently it's a good

  • spot to see bears we haven't seen any yet but I mean we've already spotted

  • three during our trip here across the islands though we're doing pretty good

  • yeah we're just heading down to the water now see what's going on they also

  • have some trails that you can walk along a nice spot

  • we're just waiting for some bear you're just waiting for that black bear to hear

  • well guys we saw a bear but we didn't capture it on camera it was like

  • horrible timing just as we were doing our little speaking clip you notice

  • people were like pointing and there was a bit of a commotion and we turned

  • around and the bear was going back into the woods big salmon as well she called

  • one against the defends the barrier that they have over there to stop the salmon

  • from going upstream yeah and well for him is like going to the supermarket

  • because we have to do is open his mouth and grab there is you caught a little

  • bit of it going back into the bush back side in his tail like I mean I will show

  • what we got we saw I would be waiting for another 40 minutes to see if he came

  • back I figure he was going to come back because he was a large bear on one

  • Salmon and for him it's not enough but there were some reason he hasn't the

  • competitor has shown his face again so feeling shy not a big audience waiting

  • maybe he's late in the afternoon when everybody goes from here there's no

  • people that's right they said they shot this they shut this place down at 3:30

  • yeah it's almost that time now so it's already 4:00 I went into three I don't

  • think we're gonna see another one at least here but we still have another

  • hike and maybe we'll see one on the height okay

  • the Quinsam river hatchery was a real find and we only learned about it after

  • my dad saw a photo of a bear fishing for salmon in the local newspaper for any of

  • you who may be interested in visiting we geotag this location and added some info

  • over on the trove wrap the hatchery is located a short five kilometre drive

  • from downtown Campbell River heading west on highway 28 and left on

  • Queensland Road it's open to visitors seven days a week

  • from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and well worth the visit if you're already in the area

  • from there it was onwards to nearby Elk Falls

  • update welcome to old falls provincial park is it yeah I was telling Audrey

  • that I never came here when I lived in gold River and the reason being it's

  • apparently the suspension bridge area was created in 2009 and I left in 1999

  • so ten years ten years off it's been a little while and so this is actually

  • very close to my hometown of cold river and it's actually on the highway from

  • Campbell River to Gold River yeah it's a beautiful little trail and

  • there's gonna be a suspension bridge and yeah it's a nice way to kind of end the

  • day a little bit of a nature hike here um it's been a phenomenal day I mean we

  • saw another bear made a really nice time in Campbell River and yeah what a great

  • day yeah

  • one of the main draws to Elk Falls is a 25 meter waterfall that gives the park

  • its name there's a suspension bridge for those willing to brave the heights as

  • well as viewing decks for those who prefer to stay a little closer to solid

  • ground we saw Golden Retriever make it across but not all visiting pups were

  • convinced

  • well guys we are continuing our little walk through Elk Falls Provincial Park

  • we just finished visiting the suspension bridge and it's a really beautiful time

  • of day because the Sun is beginning to set so we're getting this nice golden

  • light it's golden hour so yeah it's just really nice for filming and photography

  • but also a nice time to be out enjoying nature and yeah we're just taking a few

  • different trails there's an incredible Trail Network here in this park and that

  • none of the trails are too long so we're just kind of like sampling them all and

  • yeah I've fallen a bit behind I'm trying to catch up with salmon my dad now I

  • think they wanted to go get a closer look at the waterfall

  • as a tip guys there are a few different loops you can take while you're here

  • right now we are doing the old forest growth loop and I have to say there is

  • one other person here side from the three of us everyone is keyed in on the

  • falls the suspension bridge chakra and this whole section through this

  • beautiful part of the forest we've got to ourselves so tip if you come here do

  • the whole circuit

  • and that's pretty much a wrap for a day exploring Campbell River and the

  • surrounding area in tomorrow's episode we continue our drive South making a

  • stop in Nanaimo to try their delicious Nanaimo bars and we also visit the

  • biggest hockey stick in the world before continuing on to our final destination

  • Victoria only two more episodes remain so we'll

  • see you soon
