On December 12th we packed into the Bobbie Bailer Bus and headed south for a visit to the VIU Natural History Museum, joined by Nala’atsi favourite Lelaina Jules. After checking out the museum (and its array of taxidermied wonders) we visited Shq’aphthut Gathering Place, where students got a taste of campus life. And what would a trip to Nanaimo be without a visit to Mrs. Riches restaurant? We enjoyed a couple of obscenely large burgers and ate way too much (who could’ve predicted that???) followed by a quiet bus ride home.
