The story behind the image

I guess this must be the weekend of the RV. Here’s an image from our 2002 trip to British Columbia. We stayed at the Paradise Seashell Motel in Parksville, at the eastern coast of Vancouver Island. It was a pragmatic, affordable choice before we planned to hop over to Tofino and Ucluelet the next morning.

The motel was situated right next to the main street (and former highway) and not fancy by any means. In the evening we took a walk to one of the restaurants and explored the surroundings after the meal. And we saw these two RVs parked next to the water. I still remember how much I envied these owners for having found this beautiful place to park their vehicles. To me it sounds perfect to wake up in the morning with this view of the Strait of Georgia and the mountain range of B.C.’s mainland in the distance.
