Mackenzie Beach and the TinWis Resort Near Tofino, British Columbia.It's a quiet, overcast New Year's Day and the perfect time to catch up on blogs reflecting on the past year. I discovered some very beautiful places in 2009; places that I'll always remember and hope one day to return to.One of these places was Tofino on Vancouver Island, British Columbia which I wrote about yesterday. When we were exploring the Tofino area, we stayed at the TinWis Resort on Mackenzie Beach. The TinWis is a beautiful post and beam resort overlooking the Pacific Ocean just a short drive outside of Tofino. The views from our balcony were absolutely stunning with the changing sky and tides filling my gaze everytime I looked towards the ocean. The grounds at the TinWis are impeccable with many benches overl...

Tofino, Vancouver Island, British Columbia is one of those small towns that everyone must visit at least once in their lifetime. A mysterious, uplifting energy envelopes the whole region and once you've been, you vow to return (many even devise a plan to move there). When we visited in September, I absolutely fell in love with the whole Tofino area. Situated at the end of a long peninsula that juts out into the Pacific Ocean, Tofino is at the Pacific terminus of the Trans-Canada highway.A myriad of beaches line the coast of this breath-taking penisula and it is said that the cleanest air on our planet can be found here.  Perhaps this partly why a visitor feels so wonderful when walking around Tofino or strolling along one of the misty beaches near town.The best restaurant I've even eate...

Radar Hill Near Tofino, Vancouver Island, British Columbia - A Place You Have to See!Of our many fascinating and beautiful stops along our drive to Tofino, BC in September, Radar Hill had to have been the most breathtaking. In 1954, 5 years after the Soviet Union had launched their first atomic bomb, Canada and the USA constructed a series of radar stations as early warning systems should the Soviets decide to send an atomic missile our way. Radar Hill was part of the 'pinetree line', the most southerly early warning defense line of stations. Little of the original station is left today, however the view from the original station site is magnificent and well worth the hike up to see.This site also has a memorial for the 2nd Battalion Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry who fough...

In September when we were in British Columbia, one of the highlights was spending 3 days in the Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island. If you only take one trip in your entire life, visit here. The natural beauty is breath-taking and much of it is still unspoiled. Many people come here to visit and end up staying forever. Once you visit, you'll see why.Here are some photos from our stop at Long Beach.

Make Sure You Vist the Hot Springs Near Tofino at Least Once in Your Life. This past September when we took a two week trip to British Columbia, one of the most memorable parts of our trip was the three days we spent in Tofino. I've never been to a more beautiful spot in my entire life. I'll write about Tofino in my next blog, however I wanted to tell a bit about the surrounding beauty that is to be found within a short boat, plane or car ride away. One morning we got up early, packed our sunscreen, water, lunch, windbreakers, sunglasses, bathing suits, towels and of course, camera and headed to the docks in Tofino to catch the boat Louis had booked tickets on the day before. We were going on a whale watching and hot springs tour! We traveled by boat over the swells of the ocean dipping...
