Let's Try this again!
Well... after our last "blank" post... let's try this again!
Saturday morning we spent the morning at the Vancouver Aquarium. We saw some amazing creatures... including 3 beautiful Beluga whales. I will post photos when I can edit them and resize them for the blog.
Saturday afternoon was spent on the ferry crossing to the Island. On the hour & half journey, we managed to spot 2 pods of wild orca whales (killer whales). A truly amazing site.
We off the ferry and drove to Uncle David's but only managed to drop in on Hudson my cousin.
We stayed the night in Sooke and then the next morning when to find the house we had seen on the Internet that we had liked in the area. The house's location is in bay right off the ocean with a beautiful dock.
Then we traveled North up the coast to Port Renfrew. Then across the Island towards Naninamo. The Island is just so diverse in it's beauty!
We traveled through Naninamo to Port Alberni and then on to Tofino; where we are now.
Tifino is so touristy and busy but yet beautiful! We managed to grab ourselves a piece of the lawn at a local camp ground here (every where else was full!) and then more nights in an actual site.
We managed to rent some surf gear for the boys yesterday afternoon and they enjoyed the surf at Cox Beach. I got some great pictures and will share them another day.
I convinced Todd that before we left Tofino we would try some of their local crab and did so last night. We both had an amazing Dungeon-us crab meal that was so delicious!!
We are booked to travel back to the mainland this evening from Nanimo to North Vancouver. We are going to then travel up the Sea-to-Sky highway to Whistler to hopefully go on the Peak to Peak gondola there.
I'm off to do laundry this morning... hope to check back in soon!!
