Two and a half hour drive and we we're in Tofino on the west coast of the island.

We got a place in the Duffin cove resort, our room has a great view out to sea, so we have been wildlife watching. So far we have seen a group of 4 sea otters, a bald eagle (they were queuing up to see one of these in Yellowstone, and we have one right off our balcony), and a Raccoon. No whales or sea lions yet, the girl that is managing the place said they had 3 whales in the bay yesterday.

We have booked a trip to see Bears in the morning.... hope we see some.

Up early to go hunting bears.... and we saw quite a few, pictures not that great, too far away and my camera wasn't up to the job, wish i had my Pentax . Never mind it was really good seeing them through the binoculars, quite a few cubs with mums, and it was funny seeing them climb up the trees whenever they felt threatened (other bears).

In the afternoon we did a couple of walks, then sat and looked at our view out of the was really good.

On the morning we were leaving Tofino we got up and looked for our view, it had gone, all we could see was a grey mist out of the window, and it was really cold. So we were glad to be leaving and heading over the other side of the island.
