So back to the west coast and on the 25th of March last year - it was the 'wet' west coast as we got up to rain, sometimes mixed with snow. Not the sort of day for walking miles on the beach so after breakfast we decided to go for a drive. First stop was at Grice Bay. Grice Bay is on the east side of the peninsula that has Tofino at one end and Uculet at the other. This can be a pretty spot but as you can see it was pretty dreary on this day. So onwards to the town of Tofino. Tofino has grown considerably in the past few years, and definitely caters to the tourist. We drove to Chesterman Beach, a beach that we used to enjoy years ago but that is now lined with expensive homes and hotels.
The rest of the day continued pretty dark and gray with rain off and on. By this time the novelty of being on the west coast is wearing thin as everything is wet. Our clothes are wet, we've used every towel we own drying off us and dogs, the windows in the trailer are constantly streaming with moisture.......but as long as the weather stays the way it is, we don't dare attempt heading back over the mountains, so have to wiat it out.
