The West Coast of Vancouver Island is stunningly beautiful. Tofino is our vacation destination of choice and we have spent many a summer here walking the beaches. kiting, kayaking and enjoying the ocean. The road to Tofino is narrow and windy, perfect for those hunting the perfect twistie by motorcycle. However we usually come by motorhome and just relax. When we are in Tofino we do a lot of walking or bicycling. I am planning a motorcycle weekend with the hubby in the next few weeks, just to experience the twisties.
The picture of the twisties of the Pacific Rim highway are not done justice through a moving motorhome window. It is very narrow and very twisty.
Our little dog frolics like a puppy when we back to Tofino, but this year she has slowed down considerably. Our beach walks are lovely, but she can't go the distance she used to and we end up carrying the little might back. I am not sure how many more summers we will spend together and that in itself is bitter sweet.
Last night a storm rolled through the area and brought thunder, lightening and torrential rain. I have to say I am so glad we were not in a tent. I think I have done my tenting days and require a little luxury for these middle aged bones.
If you have never been to Vancouver Island you are missing out. Tofino is breathtaking and recharges ones soul.
