Tofino has always had a special place in my heart. I have the sweetest childhood memories of being on the beach, dragging the longest piece of kelp I could find across the sand, tracing designs with sticks, collecting pebbles and sand dollars, making sand castles with my mom and hitting golfballs across the bare foggy sands with my dad. I can’t even describe how grateful I am for my amazing childhood.
We started our last full day in Tofino by visiting an old beach we used to go to when I was a child. We spent an hour exploring, collecting pebbles and shells, and my dad found some Tsunami debris from Japan. We stopped for lunch at a local pub and then headed on our way to visit a gorgeous beach in Ucluelet with a lighthouse built in 1906.Bryson immediately took to the boulders, and I soon followed him, up towards the heavy skies.
As we returned from Ucluelet to Tofino, the fog lifted and we were left in a blanket of sunlight. While the sun was still poking through, Bryson and I went to explore a little corner of Tofino. We stumbled upon a gorgeous glass-blowing studio,admired this little bike rental shed,and drooled over all the delicious treats this little cafe had to offer.Although we felt pretty tired from our day of exploration, we weren’t ready turn in just yet…There was still one more sunset to moon over.
