I had no idea what to expect from my vacation in Tofino. I went with hopes in mind and plans in place. I saw photos, I heard stories, places to see were recommended, warnings were given. I heeded all that was available and offered up before hand. When I finally arrived and began to settle in to this journey, I was blown away!
I went prepared for rain, wind, storms. I brought books to read by the fireplace. My home away from home had a window to the world of beach life in Tofino. I half expected to be watching this world from the warmth and dryness of my living room lounge.
I believe I need to acknowledge that I needed to be there when I was and that for some unexplained reason the weather conditions turned to perfectly warm and sunny and clear and wonderful which is not the norm whatsoever for the end of February. I am very thankful for this. I treasured every second of time I spent in Tofino.
I wanted to spend my last morning here walking my beach. When I looked out I saw a darkness in the clouds almost like the beginnings of a rain storm. I donned the yellow slicker that hung in the closet in my suite which is provided by the resort. I like that it has a sand dollar on the back. I went outside to face that storm!
I paced, I waited, I strolled. It was taking its time to brew. I decided to go back inside and have breakfast while it was brewing. When I finished I opened my curtains only to see blue, pink and sun. Oh well, just another day in paradise.
I spent a little longer here before it was time to begin the trek back to reality. I stopped my Kennedy Lake for a visit and then strolled through Cathedral Grove. British Columbia is also known for its massive amounts of trees quantity-wise and size-wise.
Tomorrow I will only say so long to British Columbia.
