Sometimes I forget how beautiful the place I live in really is, so today I went for a 8 hour road trip (there and back) and was happily reminded.
Many tourists that come to Vancouver Island only get too see Victoria, and of course we love it here, but there are so many other amazing small towns and cities that are on Vancouver Island that many people do not know about, and Tofino is one of them.
Tofino is a small town located on the tip of a peninsula, and over the summer is swamped by thousands of tourists and campers all wanting to experience the 'small town' beach life. Tofino offers many resorts and camp grounds to stay at as well as so many exciting activities like scuba diving, whale watching and fishing, but their biggest attraction is surfing.
Wetsuits are probably in the top ten list of most unattractive thing to wear
I have only been surfing a few times but I am so in love with the sport.
Being out on the ocean and putting all your attention and focus into nothing but the waves really allows you to be 100% stress free.
So many freckles after a day in the sun!
I told my friends today as we were driving up that before I am 30 I am going live in Tofino for at lease the summer (please hold me to this!).
Have any of you tried surfing before? Do you love it like me? Let us know in the comment box below!
PS Sorry about the quality of the photos, forgot my camera at home but I really wanted to share this great place and day with you guys!
