Wow, another day without rain. It wasn’t real sunny today but it wasn’t pouring rain either.

I walked down to the water this morning and it was as calm as an ocean can get – no surfing today!! I met a young couple who seemed to think that tomorrow will be a good day, hope so for their sake.

Looking Towards Tofino

The Beach at Cox Bay

We left Cox Bay about 11 to head for home, if it had been windy this morning we would have gone back to Ucluelet to see the waves crashing, but that not being the case we headed for home. We stopped at a river on the way back and it was black with salmon who had come there to spawn – quite a sight.

Can You See the Salmon?

We stopped in Port Alberni and walked around a bit and had a coffee and donut. Port Alberni is a pretty town at the end of a very long inlet but the mills there are closing, and as that is the main employment the town is really going to hurt. The main street is only two lanes but is wide enough for at least four lanes – quite pretty.

We ran into a bit of rain when crossing the “hump” which is the low mountain that runs along the island but once over we ran out of it again.

Mountains with Snow

Sproat Lake

Dave stopped at Cathedral Grove so we could take pictures of the pumpkins. There were some really neatly carved ones there as you can see from the pictures.


John & Janet

We got back about 3 and came home and got the furnace going to warm up our little home on wheels as it was quite cool after being closed up for a couple of days.

I have tried the internet and as usual here there is nothing so I will go over tomorrow at some point and get this posted.

And so ends another great gift of a day, and a great trip to Tofino and Ucluelet, and we look forward to another nice day tomorrow.
