My wife and I went skiing in Whistler British Columbia. We had two extra days and decided to go exploring on Vancouver island. We had no idea about where we were going. We picked a route that would take us to the Pacific where we wanted to watch the sun go down.
We were delighted when we ended up at the Canadian Pacific Rim National Park. This park stretches between two wonderful harbor towns noted for their ocean kayaking and whale watching. Tofino to the north and Ucluelet to the south. Both offer unsurpassed food and accomodations not to mention the scenery. Both are sheltered harbors. Ucluelet has a blackwater harbor full of old wooden fishing boats complete with perfect reflections.
If you are in the area on vacation, give youself and family a treat and vist this area. My sunset photos at the Rim Park should speak for themselves. Enjoy!! P.S if storms are coming , be sure to make reservations in the winter months.
