Tofino is without a doubt my favourite place so far. It’s a really small laid back seaside town with only one road in and out. It feels like a well kept secret.
The surfers here are nuts about surfing – they’ll go surfing all day everyday if they can – or go out in the morning, break for lunch, then back out in the afternoon.
I achieved a goal – I stood up on a surfboard and caught a wave! Yay.
Something that I couldn’t do on my attempt back home. It was so much fun – even when the water temperature was 7 degrees. A thick wetsuit with hoodie, boots and gloves works wonders. Even caught some waves!
The Schooner Cove trail was well worth the 30km round trip bike ride
And the ferry trip from Nanaimo back to Horseshoe Bay, Vancouver wasn’t too bad either.
Now I’m in Calgary on a cattle farming ranch. Today it was -10 degrees! I’ll post some pictures up in my next post.
