On Malcolm Island now. My computer was taken by accident off the bus in Campbell River and I only got it back today. The bus ride from Naniamo is 6.5 hours. Only once a day from Greyhound. At Port McNeil you have to take a ferry that also goes to Alert Bay. I also have pictures and I'll put them up another time. Another 2 friendly dogs and 2 cats that haven't made friends yet. One is close by though. Chickens, salad, raspberries and others I will write about later.
