Living on Island Time
Tofino, British Columbia, Canada
August 25 – September 1, 2012
But First There's Victoria
We took a small plane over to Victoria from Vancouver that was powered by propellers. Victoria was a temporary stop while we waited for the Tofino bus the next day. It was a much slower city than home. Brittany and I went out for a fish and chips dinner at Red Fish Blue Fish. The line up was huge, like, really huge. But it was completely worth it.
Modern Studio Suite in the Trees
AirBnb helped us find this great place just outside of Tofino. The hosts provided bikes which we used everyday, Chesterman beach was nearby and they had a friendly dog that would visit.

Visiting the Rainforest
We made our way to Meare’s island and walked through dense old growth forest and admired it. Nurse logs created the ideal conditions for more life. The newborn trees were standing upon the shoulders of giant red cedars.

The Sun Sets
This was the last sunset of the trip. One of the bus drivers in Tofino told us about this rocky spot on Chesterman beach. We climbed up and watched it set.
