After 2,5hrs of driving, I am now back in (rainy) Victoria. I had a great time on my little adventure, but it'll be good now to relax just a little bit before heading off to Vancouver.
Yesterday I went to Ucluelet and Tofino. On my way I did loads of stops, recommended by Chris, the hostel owner. It's just sooo beautiful up there!! Huge forests with massive lakes in between. Unreal.
Right by the road
When I got to Ucluelet it just rained, rained and rained a bit more. But even so, I drove around the little town a bit before heading off to Tofino. Between Ucluelet and Tofino are loads of beautiful beaches, mostly known for surfing. I stopped on almost every beach, ran out in the rain, took a couple of photos and ran back to the car, haha. I would have hated leaving this place without some photgraphic evidence. Tofino was tiny and not much to do. I was a little lost, especially when I had no idea where to go haha. And again, it rained.. So I'll def have to come back for some surfing!
Rainy Little Beach in Ucluelet
It's raining, it's poring..
A beach. Can't remember which one
On my way back to Port Alberni I SAW A FRIGGIN' BEAR!!!!! Right by the side of the road, was a huuuge black bear. I was so happy :D There was no place to pullover so I did not get a photo of him/her, sadly enough.. This picture from Google will do for now.
In the evening, I joined three others that were staying at the hostel in some card games. Two from Holland and one from Germany. Real nice
Now off to enjoy my last night in Victoria!!
