Tofino Skies


My energy always goes from zapped to euphoria when I escape the grey valley skies and head for the coast. The weather was wonderful, the rain holding off till I headed for home. I had no wheels so couldnt get to the beach, sadly. I miss the ocean waves so much. But they are too far away for me to walk to now. So I contented myself with the harbor and the village centre.


This is a huddle of floathouses, off Strawberry Island, some long-time locals solving the housing problem in this fashion. There are others, farther away from town, tucked happily into pockets among the many small islands scattered throughout the Sound.


Sunlight and mist on the slopes of Meares Island.


This was my view from Chris's doorstep. Sigh.


Beautiful Tofino skies.




A viewing spot for the harbor, looking across at Lone Cone and, in the distance, Catface.

I had a wonderfully joyous time there, my friends. Next time, I MUST get to the beach so I can share some shots of the wild waves, and the song of the sea, that sings in my soul, forever calling me home.

  4. Wonderful pictures Sherry. Can you take a boat from the harbor to the beach? Gosh. To have your soul lifted for a couple of days is something!

  11. i'm with Brian. i know you appreciate the time and space you spent there in this sojourn but like any fabulous restaurant you've tasted some ot the items but would like to taste some others. next time call ahead for seating and maybe the vocal base of the roaring waves will greet you and the choir of the small ebb tides hitting the shore will sooth you and and Tofino's soul with your soul will dance to its song.

    like everyone else here, i live vicariously through your heart and souls love of Tofino

    gracias for sharing mi amiga

  12. So beautiful, Sherry--I can see why this place calls to you--each picture is just full of the sense of openness and connection that nature's beauty gives us. So glad you got to visit, even if you didn't make it all the way to the waves.

  14. Really petty up there. Thank you for the tour.. Close to the ocean there wouldn't be much snow, right?
    I've not been to Tofino or Meares Island, but have been to Victoria and the Butchart Gardens, Vancouver of course.
