... of Qualicum Beach, a happening place in summer but very quiet in the fall and winter. Although noticeably the beaches here are nothing to ours, grey pebbly beach no sand, and logs placed everywhere for anyone that wishes to sit on the beach, there is no towel sitting here, it’s all on logs!

It is really cool because of the inlet, the town is basically surrounded by water and it does not take long to drive from the inlet to the ocean, just a few minutes by car. The water in the inlet is so calm and still while the ocean waves crash gently against the rocky shore.
We left Ucluelet and headed towards Tofino. To get there, you must drive through the Pacific Rim National Park, which is amazing. We stopped at ...
