It was a beautiful spring day down at the Nanaimo Harbor.  The blues from the ocean and sky were spectacular.  Lots of small shops were open and people were enjoying the sunshine.

A nice seawall walk at the waters edge takes you as far as you wish to walk.  A peaceful and serene place in the middle of a city.  There are lots of benches to sit on to enjoy a coffee and the view.

Bastion
Bastion built in 1853-55

Standing tall in the harbor is the Bastion – 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!
