After eight days in the driveway we decided to pull the car out from under the snow and go out for lunch to the "Little Bavaria" restaurant in down town Port Alberni. After digging a basic path to the road for traction we cleared the snow off the windshield and made it out on to the road. The roof still had about 15 cm of snow on it and I managed to remove that by coming to a quick stop at the nearest intersection. The whole load slid off onto the hood and then the street. We had to pull over because this mini avalanche pulled the drivers side windshield wiper forward. An easy fix. Sometimes gravity does not suck.

Lunch was excellent, Shelagh enjoyed a Seafood schnitzel with shrimp and scallops in a white wine sauce, and I had a Yeager schnitzel, a small bowl of cream of broccoli soup to start for both of us. We added a bottle of Australian Lindemann's Pinot Grigio to round out the meal. Delicious! Shelagh is now researching white wine sauce recipes so we can make this at home.

We are enjoying Port Alberni, it is definitely not the little hick town people think it is. This town is up and coming... Real estate is cheap, for now, and there is so much to see and do here if you like the outdoors...
