With a sudden forecast of one wonderful weather day at the coast, a final trip in the Four Wheel Camper became the agenda. I left Salt Spring Island in the morning rain. The rain was heavy with significant fog heading north to Nanaimo but began to clear as I headed west. Instead of a non-stop race to the coast, I made photo stops in the sunshine at Larry Lake (above) and at Kennedy River (below).
So, the 7am ferry from Salt Spring, two comfortable photo stops, and lunch in Ucluelet at noon. Then an afternoon hike on the Wild Pacific Trail. And a late afternoon check-in at a Green Point campsite (in Pacific Rim National Park)—with an ocean view.
Many ‘Salt Springers’ admit to having an obsession—a need—to visit the Ucluelet to Tofino area of Canada’s west coast. And I’m one of them. Stay tuned for the next two photos of the day; both are from Long Beach in Pacific Rim Park. And then we’ll get back to regular Salt Spring Island programming.
