Fabulous sunny day on the island so a drive with the roof open was in order. Took the old highway to Campbell River with the plan of attending Wings & Wheels, a plane and car show at the Campbell River Airport.
Before the final destination lunch became important so we parked near the big marina and headed for the Rip Tide Pub. We didn’t quite make as right next to it is a MOXIES and their patio looked inviting.
The menu looked good and the food going by looked really good. My favourite girl chose Chicken Fingers which were excellent. A large order so I felt compelled to help her out. Huevos Rancheros seemed a good choice for me. They were perfect. Pulled chicken between two tortillas with tiny black beans, rice and avocado topped with two fried eggs and a delicious spiced sauce. Different than I’ve had before but I’d order again in a nanosecond.
The service was prompt and friendly and the servers and bussers were well trained and efficient.
The Rip Tide Pub next door is also very good and we have noshed there several times.
If you are hungry in Campbell River, you can’t go wrong in either of these eateries.
Oh, the plane and car show. It was pretty good some great cars but the best part was touching a B25 MITCHELL BOMBER from WWll. Didn’t get to see her fly but just seeing her up close was pretty cool. There were almost 10,000 built in the US. There are more than 100 still around the world and about 45 are still airworthy. Amazing after more than 70 years.
By the way it was HOT at the airport. 31C!
