Duncan-Cowichan to Bamberton PP
Saying our goodbyes, we made the trip to hit-up the Saturday Farmer's Market in Duncan. Known as the City of Totems" for it's totem poles, Duncan is also semi-notorious for it's main bridge which spans the Cowichan River.
In Duncan, thanks to a well-timed urgent need to pee, we got the pleasure of visiting the Cowichan Valley Museum, housed in a 1912 railway station.
Leaving Duncan, we'd hoped to be able to spend the night camping on the Cowichan River but there were no spots left at the popular Stolz Pool site. We spent some time visiting the pool anyway (sadly, no Eric was spotted) before trying our luck at Bamberton PP.
At Bamberton, we landed one of the last spots available - a gorgeous rainforest site that looked like it had been hastily-abandoned by someone in a tent who was afraid the rain would continue.
Before leaving in the morning, we checked out the beach and picked some rip, sun-warm blackberries to eat. Opting to enjoy them rather than try our luck with the shellfish offerings.
