We sprang from bed. Again, not really, but we did get up and packed and out of the resort fairly early, then zoomed into downtown Parksville to Smitty's for breakfast.
I have nothing but complimentary things to say about the Parksville Smitty's.
Clean, warm, welcoming. Great service. Tea cups with no coffee or lipstick stains. Hashbrowns in a choice of shredded or cubed (you have no idea how happy this makes Dave. No idea.)
Eggs cooked right. A non-dribbly teapot that holds more than one cup of hot water. Fluffy pancakes with real butter and Smitty's own syrup.
The only odd thing was the sign outside. I wish I had taken a picture, but we zoomed away too fast.
That's the wet bum of our car. Did I mention it was raining a bit?
....and below, are some TREES. Not just any trees, but old majestic, marvelous, magnificent trees. Many trees....and they just kept getting BIGGER.
