When living in Victoria BC, “going to the country” to look at the scenery seems a little silly because everything is so beautiful most days that a ride to the so-called country just seems like over doing it!
But every now and again it is nice to “get out-of-town” and spend the afternoon taking a drive to look at all the other beautiful landscape.
Today we headed out of Victoria and up the West Coast of Vancouver Island, on highway 14 towards Port Renfrew. This is fairly wild country but still populated enough that you aren’t completely in the wilderness like many other parts of the island. There are a few Provincial parks along the way that are popular camping, hiking or picnicking locations.
We decided to stop for lunch at a popular resort that is at about the half way mark between Victoria and Port Renfrew. A place called Point No Point.
They boast a cute little restaurant with a spectacular view along side cottages of various sizes and amenities all nestled into the side of the hill overlooking the Juan de Fuca Straight.
The Restaurant looks pretty unassuming from the outside but is extremely cozy and inviting inside. With a sweet little lobby filled with books and games to pass the time or wait for your table.
