Cindy and I waiting to see if anyone was going to tag along. When we pulled up there were beautiful vintage cars parked at a local restaurant. I couldn't resist snapping some pics.
We waited for a bit but it turned out it was just the two of us which was awesome, we always have a ton of fun together. So off we went. It takes about 5-6 hours to do the Loop. It is out in the boonies and there are very few services along the way. Here is the Loop map.
Our first stop was Sooke. As we were approaching you could see a heavy layer of marine fog/cloud. It can also be very chilly on this side of the island, my mesh jacket wasn't cutting it, thank goodness I brought layers.
There are several one lane bridges and it is twisty paradise! The switchbacks are awesome and challenging. This is a route in which you follow the road signs and posted speed. It is pretty isolated and there is no cell service, so if you get into trouble you have to wait until someone comes along to help. Its also an active logging area, so you have to be vigilant and attentive to your surroundings.
