Few days ago San and I celebrated 10th anniversary – back in 2010 we were married in Tofino, on a stormy day, close to Cox Bay beach. It felt appropriate to come back to that area, in a year that feels as stormy as the one ten years ago.
As we expected, the weather was bad. Winters on west coast of Vancouver Island are a chain of storms with few beads of short sunny days in between. And so we went for a hike along the ocean.
Weather Network predicted about 45 millimeters of rain today. I made as many photographs as I dared to, without trying to kill my camera. Our rain gear was soaking wet.
But this ragged coast is used to harsh weather. So is a wild life.
Back in our hotel room, we put our clothing to dry, had a quick lunch and sat in front of fire place with a glass of scotch.
Tomorrow we are going to Long Beach. Hope to see some big waves.
