Pacific Rim National Park - Tofino, Long Beach, Cox Bay, August 2000

A combination of photos from a 1999 and 2000 trip to Tofino, BC. The 1999 trip was my second time on Vancouver Island (my first being a weekend with Agata staying at Qualicum Beach, near Nanaimo), and marked my first return to activity after a long and boring rehabilitation following ankle surgery. I remember those first waves I caught at Long Beach as if it were yesterday!

We were accompanied by Karen and Wayne on our 2000 trip to Tofino, and endured some less than perfect weather while there. This time, Agata and I explored the surf north of Long Beach - from Cox Bay to Chesterman Beach. If only the drive wasn't so long, otherwise we'd be back a lot more often. Tofino rocks, eh!

Sraight of Juan de Fuca (2001) - Souke to Sombrio Point

Sraight of Juan de Fuca - Souke to Sombrio Point, September 2001

Agata and I received an all-inclusive stay at a bed-and-breakfast in Souk as a wedding gift, and waited nearly ten months to finally cash it in. On a weekend when I was initially jealous of friends Chris and Dave climbing Mount Shuksan, Agata and I instead went the opposite direction - towards Victoria, BC and the Vancouver Island side of the Straight of Georgia. And while the mountain was still there for me to climb the following Summer, this trip to Souk and up and down Vancouver Island's Juan de Fuca coastline was a most memorable experience and we're looking forward to our next Vancouver Island getaway!
