We are on the search for some delicious breakfast joints around Vancouver Island (come on now, it's the most important meal of the day!) and what is more satisfying than a wonderful Sunday breakfast/brunch?! Now here is the fun part: we've taken some suggestions from our followers on Twitter and Facebook and compiled them here, our readers will vote and the place with the most votes we will go visit!
Over the next week we will be taking votes on which of these wonderful breakfast places we will be visiting next for a review! Thanks everyone! Tweet us, facebook us or leave a comment and let us know which one YOU suggest :)
The Harewood Plains in Nanaimo B.C is home to second growth forest and open meadows and highlights an amazing view of south Nanaimo. It is bordered by Harewood Mines Road, 10th St and McKeown in Chase River. It can be accessed via Harewood Mines road just past Rimrock Trail, or at the end of McKeown Way the first right off of Chase River road past the elementary school.
The Harewood Plains area is privately owned by stakeholders Island Timberlands and the BC Transmission Corporation (they maintain the transmission lines throughout this area).

The full course costs $39.99 or if you are doing the kids course, $19.99. Depending on the size of your group you may be eligible for group pricing.
The course includes a natural obstacle course within the environment including zip lines, suspended bridges, scramble nets, swinging logs and much more. It's takes about 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 hours to complete the entire course. (Which we were unable to do, since we had some slow people ahead).
It's important to always make sure you are clipped onto something with your safety harness at all times or you will be banned from the course.
I would personally suggest going in groups of 10 or less and try to go early in the day because it does get extremely busy on weekends.
