A beautiful stroll along the waterfront as the sun was setting. We even got to ser a cruise ship go by in the distance. Port hardy is nice and quite so it is a very peaceful place to walk along the water.

Nice city park with great view. Map shows it on the south side of the channel but in fact it's in town across from North Shore Inn.
