What a lovely week on the west coast! We headed for Tofino last monday with dear friends K & R and enjoyed a perfect week together. We had every kind of weather and a seven-hour power outage, but even that couldn’t dampen our spirits.

K & R were kind enough to drive us all, and we took our time and enjoyed the scenery. A stop Coombs for a few groceries; sadly we saw no goats! We stopped at Cathedral Grove for a walk through the ancient forest and then onto Sproat Lake for a picnic lunch. We pulled into our delightful cottage at the Gold Coast Retreat late afternoon and headed straight for Chesterman Beach, accessed just across the road. The clouds had rolled in, but it was still very beautiful.
