I wouldn’t call us seasoned recreational travelers, but we’ve got a few years of RV travel under our belt. During that time, we’ve overnighted everywhere from a truck stop, to a parking lot, side of the road and campgrounds. Some facilities are total dumps and some are resorts.
It’s called Pedder Bay RV Resort & Marina. This resort is located 40 minutes from downtown Victoria along the Strait of Juan de Fuca. It’s surrounded by forests and the ocean, in a tranquil little harbor.
It has a full-service marina with 240 berths, modern docks, lighting and power, security and marine gas service. It also has a bustling full tackle and bait shop, with good reason. The Strait of Juan de Fuca is one of the key migration routes for all five species of Pacific Salmon so offers great salmon fishing all year, halibut fishing and crabbing.
Pedder Bay RV Resort is quiet and intelligently designed with cedar trees planted between the campsites for privacy. Many other RV parks do that too but they’re often kind of scraggly and don’t really serve that purpose.
We spent a lot of time relaxing on our deck just watching the boats come and go. We will be back to Pedder RV Resort and hope to stay longer next time.
Thank you so much for your kind words and prayers for Lucy on my last post.
X-rays discovered a large tumor in her chest which they believed had spread to her lymph nodes. She was not improving with oxygen and she would not recover. We couldn’t have her suffer through surgeries or other invasive procedures. At 14 1/2, she deserved to be pain-free and at peace so we had to put her to sleep. Our hearts are broken and we miss her terribly. She was a trouper, great friend, and loved everyone. I will look for her often in the places she used to sit by me and will always remember how very sweet she was.
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
