We really enjoyed a beautiful spring day down at the Nanaimo Harbor. The blues from the ocean below and sky above were spectacular. We also found lots of small shops to shop. As well as shopping many people were enjoying the beautiful sunshine.
A nice seawall walk at the waters edge takes you as far as you wish to walk. There are lots of benches to sit on to enjoy a coffee and the view. This is a peaceful and serene place in the middle of a city.
Standing tall in the harbor is the Bastion which was built by the Hudson’s Bay Company to defend its coal-mining resources. We couldn’t go inside the building since it was shut for the winter. This gives us a reason to come back again!
