Two hours away from our apartment in Nanaimo on the west side of the island is Tofino. We failed to check the weather before driving there, and it rained the WHOLE time, but it was beautiful! While in Tofino we stopped at a couple of beaches to look at the view and let Bristol run around, and we ate at this quaint little Cafe overlooking the ocean. It was really a lot of fun! While stopping at a little gift shop Bristol screamed until we bought her a little stuffed Bald Eagle. She had to have it. Glimpses of the future? I hope not!
One interesting note about Tofino is that we notice tsunami warning signs. They would say something like "Tsunami evacuation route" and then have an arrow pointing inland. Interesting! We found out that the San Andreous Fault line runs all the way up into Canada, so there is a possibility of large natural disasters.
