the west coast of Vancouver Island in the rain

 My chariot to Nanaimo
Shelter, a wonderful restaurant in Tofino - it's teeming rain, and I'm presented with Cortez Island mussels in white wine, chunks of garlic and fresh thyme - and frites
Our cosy abode - Chesterman Beach B and B - fabulous
 It rained all yesterday and today. The B and B has a roomful of boots, slickers and rain pants. We walked on the beach.
 Crowded Chesterman Beach
Some people have it good - a house on the beach
 Today's picnic - fish and chips from the fish truck in Ucluelet - fresh cod in a tempura batter, fresh and light, the best I've ever had
The Wild Pacific Trail - a stunning trail along the cliffs outside of Ucluelet
Patsy takes it in
A bald eagle

Long Beach - the usual crowds
 This guy! He was taking his family surfing on this chilly wet day, people who'd never surfed before. "It's so fun," he said.

The Little Free Library by the Catholic church in Tofino.

Good times, my friends.
