Port Alberni is located in the province of British Columbia in Canada. One of its attractions is the Harbour Quay which is a waterfront collection of boutiques, eateries, public sculptures and parks. It is also a popular sightseeing spot with great views of marine life.
The Maritime Discovery Centre can also be found here. It is a maritime museum constructed from a real lighthouse which displays the marine history of the valley.
Also on display is The Banfield. It served valiantly from 1951 to 1969. She is a wooden-hulled, diesel powered surf boat, able to right herself in heavy seas with a keel containing 1800 pounds of bronze.
Here’s a photo of the famous Clock Tower at the Harbor Quay. It features a gallery that offers a wide array of artworks that you can buy.
Hubby says that one of the highlights of walking around the quay was eating the best fish and chips at Turtle Island.
This is Star Evviva, hubby’s vessel at Port Alberni. They loaded 6,000 tons of high quality lumber bound to Port of Tokyo Japan. As you would notice in the photo, the Maritime Museum Lighthouse could be seen at the background.
Here’s a photo of lumber that was loaded in the vessel.
