As promised, here are some of the Tofino pics I’ve been meaning to post from the last couple trips. Bear with me… there’s quite a few!
HD Video of Tofino is still on the way… I’ll probably have a chance to edit it this weekend. In the meantime, hope you like the photos! I’ve still got a few more somewhere that I’ll post soon.
The view from our campsite… the ocean, the trees, the sun! That’s why it’s my favourite spot to camp…
Our car just full of camping stuff… skim boards, cooking gear, coolers, food etc… yep… gotta admit food takes up the most space. Luxury “car camping”, as Tawcan would call it
A citronella candle in our campsite… I love to scatter these everywhere around the site. They look beautiful when it is dark out. Plus… a mosquito perimeter… a bonus for those who dislike bugs as much as I do
Making mojitos at the campsite…
Crista and Trev put together some yummy beer-braised ribs over the campfire…
Allan and I make up some mango-topped thai coconut Pacific halibut (caught in Tofino of course, by us)…
Tent City! And tarp city I love how camping is the perfect excuse to wear all sorts of silly non-matched things. Who cares! You’re camping!
I love the ripples in the sand.
One of my fave restaurants in Tofino… Shelter. We always ask for the best spot in the whole restaurant… the couches right by the wood-burning fire that they stoke all night. Perfect.
Shelter’s yam fries (the best in my opinion), and some wings for appies.
We also like to eat at the Wildside Grill for Fish & Chips, grab a lime and mint slushie from the taco cart in the back, and grab a coffee or tea from the Tofitian. The very same plaza also has Live to Surf, which we always check out to see what new surfboards they have in… and try to avoid the mass craziness of people renting 9 ft easy-rider foamie or plastic longboards! Aahhhh!
Long Beach, on a good day.
Ready to surf! Yay for Burton snowboarding socks to keep the feet warm just before hitting the cold water.
Allan riding down the line… wheee… small summer waves.
Me riding a tiny wave… I look pretty lame here. I wish I had good surfing photos of myself! Of course, when the waves are big and the surf is epic, there’s no one to take pictures of you
Allan and I riding whitewash into the beach together, hurray! Haha.
A children’s toy shovel left on Long Beach…
Golfing at Long Beach Golf Course… 9 holes… lots of fun, with J, Trev, and Crista.
J decides to ride on the front of the golf cart…
Me chipping a ball…
Allan flying the trainer kite… blue, blue sky.
Me flying the trainer kite. Once upon a time we thought we were going to get into kite surfing, but then we realized how expensive the gear was, and that we wouldn’t have enough time to do kite surfing along with all the other sports we love. So it kind of fell by the wayside. Maybe one day we’ll get into it again… maybe kite snowboarding
Smoooooch! Allan and I in the water…
So fun! More photos coming soon
