Those of us who are lucky enough to call Whistler home know it can seem like a bit of a bubble sometimes. Maybe that’s why residents are constantly planning getaways from this paradise that we live in. I know I’m always ready by midwinter for a break from the constant early dawn patrols and late nights working. Tofino is a popular place for Whistler residents to visit, for the surfing, the beaches and the laid back feel, there even was a Pique article written about it. I hadn’t been to the island in a while when a friend suggested a March road trip, I suggested hitting Victoria and Tofino…
After some minor (major actually) vehicle issues in Port Alberni, we made it to the west coast of Vancouver Island.

We spent a day exploring the newly minted, and not completely finished, Wild Pacific Trail in nearby Ucluelet.

What trip to Tofino would be complete without a visit to Storm Surf Shop?
