Hello my fellow travelers,
My name is Joe and I've just moved to Port Hardy for the summer. I will call myself a visitor becuase that is what I am. While making the drive up to Port Hardy, I found that in between Port McNeill and Port Hardy this is sort of a bear alley. I saw 8 black bears just in 34 kms!!!! I was so happy to see the bears eating the grass. I wish I had my camera ready, I could have taken pictures of these beautiful creatures. I will have to drive that way on day again.
When I arrived in Port Hardy the first thing I noticed was its beauty. It had a small town feel but without the "I'm going to be bored all the time" feel to it. I drove to the Visitor's centre to get an understanding for the area, and where to figure out where I was living for the summer. They were so helpful. The amount of activities they gave me are limitless. I can't wait to get out and explore this area!!!!!
Till next time!!! :)
