Rainy Days in Tofino

One of my favourite places to go to get away from the hectic pace of life is Tofino, BC.  It is a picturesque town about half way up the West coast of Vancouver Island and is exposed to the full force of the Pacific Ocean.  This makes for some great storms and the perfect place to wash away your worries.  Even when the rain is coming down its hardest, you’ll find someone out for a walk on the beach.

Perfect Weather for a Walk on the Beach

When the rain slowed down and the tide was out, little treasures could be found washed up on the beach.

Almost as if by design, around sunset, the clouds would lighten up and allow for some magnificent colours to show through.

As always, the trip was too short… but there’s always next time!
