What We Love: Long Beach in the Old Days

Remember the old logging road from Port Alberni?

Long Beach wasn’t always a tourist destination

Nathan Cetinski posted this gem on the I Love Vancouver Island Facebook group. It’s an aerial shot of Long Beach from 1963.

Before the hippies and the tourists, the beach was a quiet solitude on the edge of the world.

Do you remember the days when anyone could camp on the beach?
