Dec 27, 2018 - Cowichan bay Vancouver island

Hello from scenic tofino on Vancouver island. It’s home to Canada’s best surf amongst the ice bergs. Temp is a refreshing 4degrees. First day we spent resting up in vancouver where the boys first tourist spot they noticed was a shop selling marajuana. Yes it’s legal here . “ no Harry I’m not buying any”! We went to nicks favourite adventure shop to pick up ace things. It seemed most of Vancouver was there unless of course they were watching the junior world championships of ice hockey. Boys loving this game. Saw snow today too. Nick is...

Apr 2, 2018 - Rocky Bluffs Hike

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD Well, all good things must come to an end, and Monday morning of the Easter weekend meant it was time to pack up and begin the long drive back across Vancouver Island and south to Victoria. There was no point in leaving too early, because we planned to pick Adia’s husband Geoff up in Port Alberni along the way. Geoff’s band, The New Groovement, had played their last of three island gigs in Port Alberni the night before, and were no doubt sleeping in after the late night entertaining the locals. One of the band...

Mar 31, 2018 - Wikaninnish Inn

@@@@@@@ BACKGROUND Here’s some of what the Lonely Planet – Canada chapter British Columbia has to say about the Wickaninnish Inn: “Wickaninnish Inn sits at one end of Chesterman Beach. Cornering the market in luxury winter-storm-watching packages, ‘the Wick’ is worth a stay any time of year. Embodying nature with its recycled-wood furnishings, natural stone tiles and the ambience of a place grown rather than constructed, the sumptuous guest rooms have push-button gas fireplaces, two-person hot tubs and floor-to-ceiling windows. It’s one of...

@@@@@@@ BACKGROUND Here’s some of what the Lonely Planet – Canada chapter British Columbia has to say about the Pacific Rim National Park and Tofino: Pacific Rim National Park Reserve “Dramatic, wave-whipped beaches and mist-licked forests make the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve a must-see for anyone interested in encountering BC’s raw West Coast wilderness. The 500-sq-km park comprises the northern Long Beach Unit, between Tofino and Ucluelet; the Broken Group Islands Unit in Barkley Sound; and, to the south, the ever-popular West...

Mar 31, 2018 - Chesterman Beach

@@@@@@@ KAPOORS ON THE ROAD In order to see Chesterman Beach at low tide that weekend, we needed to get up early, grab a bite to eat, have a quick hot tub and then drive 45 minutes towards Tofino. From Adia’s pictures I’d seen over the years, I knew it was well worth giving up a lazy morning, in order to see the spectacular beach at it’s very best. We arrived at the parking lot right at 9:00am and within moments we were on the fine sandy beach. The sheen of a fine bit of water on the wet sand made the beach look alternately like a mirror or...

Sep 17, 2017 - Tofino and Ucluelet

Tofino /Ucluelet 9/17 - 9/19 Green Point Campground. Pacific Rim National Preserve Well finally the rains started. We have so enjoyed the warm fall days but we did know eventually the locals prayers for rain would be answered. It was inevitable and we have a warm and cozy tiny house, and tonight we even have electricity. We have been spending most of our time living outside so we could conserve power, but tonight we are inside cozy warm and all the lights are on. Small pleasures. We are staying in a national park this time, right on the...

Mar 17, 2016 - St. Patrick's In Tofino

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day! We slept like babies last night after all the exploring we did on the way to Tofino. We woke ready to roll again and stayed busy all day. We started with breakfast at Ruff Beans, a cool restaurant and coffee shop with outdoor dining. This is a must do while visiting Tofino. Tofino is one of the coolest towns we have visited. It is known for being a bit of a hippy town, lots of people walking at a slower pace, enjoying the beauty of the area. Tofino is a small district on Vancouver Island, off Canada's west coast....

Aug 19, 2015 - Tofino

Days 14-16 August 15-17, 2015 It was a great drive from the Port Alberni area out to Pacific Rim. Just a few minutes west of Port Alberni, we drove along the northern shore of Sproat Lake. We could see the lake for about a dozen miles down through the trees. Not long after that the views from the highway became increasingly scenic as we wound through river canyons, over mountains, and alongside another large body of water. At first it looked like one of the numerous inlets on Vancouver Island. But it turned out to be freshwater and was...

And, we saw lots of cool small boats, islands and lots and lots of "Wasser"!!! We...

Jun 9, 2014 - Ferry to Vancouver Island & Tofino

After a 5am start (well I thought that would be better than 2am!), we had breakfast and packed our bags, then piled into the car to go to the ferry. We drove through lots of tall trees and then queued for the ferry in the car with the beautiful view of the sea. Once onboard the ferry, we went up on deck and the wind got so strong I couldn't walk!!! So we went down below and had delicious burgers and fries, followed by lot of goes on the slide with the other kids! We then got back in the car and went to a supermarket. I just wanted to have...
