Along the Coast

After teaching in Edmonton, Alberta and Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, I headed to the western coast of Vancouver Island for a few days of vacation. On my first evening I was fortunate to spot a young bear along the road driving through Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Many cars stopped to capture photographs before the bear nonchalantly lumbered back into the forest.

This area is northwest coast rainforest, so they get a fair bit of rain. I was fortunate to have a sunny few hours to walk the wild beach. There were maybe a dozen wind surfers out.

I enjoyed browsing the treasures washed up by the ocean. The kelp formed interesting patterns.

No surprise that it rained the next day. I headed to Tofino for a bit of shopping and some wonderful restaurants!
