Vancouver Island - Pacific Rim National Preserve/Tofino

overcast

We said goodbye to Cathy and headed out across the island to Tofino today. We stopped at Qualicum Bay where went walked out onto the beach where the tide was quite far out. We found some sanddollars and a few oysters and clams. We don't know type what the little fish is but he swam parallel to the bottom not perpendicular to it!

The drive across highway 4 is beautiful and very winding. You really need to believe the signs when they say to slow down to 30kms/hr!

We stopped at a rushing river which had big boulders to walk across and the water was so clear and cold!

It was 2:00 when we got to the Pacific Rim National Park but we needed lunch so,we headed into Ucluelet to eat lunch at Howlers bowling and restaurant. Good food!

The next stop was just inside the park at Long Beach where I did some beach walking and Bud fly the drone. The water was pretty cold but ok for my bare legs. The surfers didn't seem to mind!

Our motel is right in a marina with private boats and fishing boats. A room with a view.

Dinner was at Jamie's restaurant and was excellent. We drove a bit around Tofino after dinner but most of it is just a jump off point for ocean tours.
