Good morning arm chair travellers, these past few mornings have been wonderful for picture taking. The forcast is for 4 to 10 cm of rain a day over the next 7 days and up to 50 mm. That is going to put a damper on my beachcombing as we are just getting to the hot spots for seaglass on the West Coast.
We ventured to Tofino
By way of a windy ride up the mountain side in Vancouver Island.
Beautiful mountain tops, and lake side views.
A short stop off at a neat place called GOATS ON ROOF
where we purchased lunch of 400g of black forest ham, a loaf of freshly made sour dough bread and ate dessert first, lol
This is a single scoop according to Mr. Scooper, with cone and all $4
Market yams for supper. I'm thinking this is my BIG for the day.
A small pull-out and a stretch in the forest
Ferns growning 7 feet up a tree
The smell of pine bark and evergreen, so sweet.
Extended path out to the beach.
The path took us on a driftwood adventure
Constructions that were created
Not many shells, seaglass or rock
But after growth of Carbuncles
Another stop and a rather large climb up to the top of the highest point where once errected was a radar tower that was used in the Cold War.
The platform remains.
Continued on our way was sculptures on road side intersections.
A short stop off at the Visitor's Centre at edge of the National Park.
Arrived at our destination Tofino Beach - The Picture Postcard
A sence of calmness surrounded me as I looked left and looked right, no one was around. The 20 some people that walked the beach were all so far away.
I wish I'd of captured the picture like I've captured the memory. A whale straight off jumped. A killer whale, came out of the water right there as I was watching. Guy came to where I was and I pointed out the spot never thinking he would have believed me. Then it surfaced again, the rounded top blackened the surface leaving a trail of millions of bubbles. I'm still standing watching waiting as he walks away impatiently. Then one last time the whale edges from the horizon, and sprays water from its blow hole, never to be seen by me again.
Oh I stood in this spot until dark waiting watching but nothing. Nothing could have made my day more than seeing this sight.
I'm happy you came along on my adventures today. I can't say tomorrow will be as exciting, but I'll try and top it.
Until the next time we connect, blessings, peace and forgiveness,
