Sunday, the day before camp starts.
Jeremy and I had a long trip to Parksville, BC for Four Foot Curling Camp. We left Sunday morning and stopped off in Bellingham to visit his cousins. Before we left Bellingham, we ate a very tasty Philly Cheesesteak at DaVinci's.
From there, we drove to Tsawassen to take the ferry to Nanaimo. The lanes were super tight, and I had to crawl from the passenger seat to the driver's seat to get out. Holy candy craps! What a ferry ride, clocking in at 2 hours. Luckily, we bumped into fellow club member Sara. Having another person to talk allowed the time to pass by quickly.
Getting off the ferry, we followed the road to Parksville and found our hotel, the Sandcastle Inn. It was your standard hotel. If we go back in the future, there were plenty more hotels than the curling camp paperwork mentioned, and we will definitely get one with a hot tub!
We had a late dinner at a restaurant called Bugsy's. It was a little dubious looking, because it looked slow inside, but I had a steak sandwich with a caesar salad that I enjoyed. We had actually tried to go to an Irish restaurant, but it was closed when we had stopped by.
