... the other side of this massive country about 7500km away. It begins (or ends) in Victoria. At Nanaimo (where we shall be taking a ferry on Thursday to Vancouver) we left the highway to head inland to Port Alberni (pronounced Al Bernie not Albany) then over the mountains to the west coast. At Port Alberni we scoffed excellent fish and chips and bought food from a bizarre supermarket with a load of Albert Heijn products. Good for stocking up ...
We awoke to driving rain in the morning but Brianna was not deterred from a soak in the hot tub. I could sit in my comfy chair watching the sheets of rain blowing in the inlet. By afternoon the wind had died but the rain continued, so TV, magazines and novels were the order of the day. The fireplace kept us toasty warm.

Headed to Tofino for our 11th year. Although the waves were a bit small this year we all had a blast. The weather was warm and sunny most days. We liked to surf after most people have gone home hence...6:30 pm till dark...therefore dinner most nights was pretty late but wow what a feeling.
Hooked up with Dylan and Devon's buddies Derek Rodway and Jackson Coyes and did some surfing and hiking. Really great spot ...

... back, into a very strong wind. Welcome to Tofino. So worth it though.. watching the surfers do their thing.. couples young and old, families with kids, others with dogs, some on bicycles which was interesting to watch in the wind.. all there to enjoy the sand and the surf, the beautiful vistas, etc. It surprised me how peaceful it was, even in the wind. After our walk we cleaned up and then started to make our way back to Victoria. Thanks Greg and Tracy for the great weekend! ...
