A Day on the West Coast


the island secret

Some days are just meant for exploring. Yesterday morning I woke up to the sun streaming through my bedroom window and knew that it was going to be a day filled with adventure. Tossing my ‘to-do’ list out the window, I hopped in my car and let the road take me wherever it pleased. One of my favorite ways to spend a Sunday afternoon is to leave the city and head west to Jordan River; the home of the BEST fish + chips served from an old camping trailer. Jordan River is a surfing hotspot and we sat admiring the surfers and savouring our lunch. We then continued all the way out to Port Renfrew on the very west coast of Vancouver Island. It is home to nothing but the most rugged, beautiful west coast beaches. There is no cell phone reception, radio reception or shops. The perfect place to go and just clear your mind while watching the waves roll in. We stayed until sunset where they sky transformed into the most vibrant shades of violet and magenta, then we made the three hour drive back to Victoria with the freshest air filling our lungs
