Ucluelet Animal Wellness Clinic continued
Friday, November 26 - Many of the team came across on the ferry from Vancouver (two hours) to Nanaimo and then drove through rain, ice and snow over the summit to the west coast of Vancouver Island (approximately three hours). Several braved the elements and drove up the Island from Victoria and Sidney, and across from the Qualicum area on the east coast of the Island. After dinner, our first team meeting was held by Donna Lasser, Team leader, where a brief overview was given of how the clinic was to proceed the following morning and questions were answered. We hit our air mattresses and sleeping bags early, anticipating a busy day tomorrow.
