16th March was a good day

Today was a good day.   I’ve never seen such an amazing range of fantastic scenery in my life.

We started the morning with breakfast in an amazing natural store in Tofino, and I finally got to take a classic ‘vegans of Instragram’ photo of this breakfast smoothie bowl.

That’s actually my other half’s food… mine looks like this…

It our last day in Tofino, so we took a short walk on the very scenic long beach.  The amount of driftwood there is stunning as is the size of it – most of the branches in this shot are too big for me to get my arms around.

We original drove to Tofino in what I think Canadians call “light rain” and what UK residents call “a bloody hurricane-wait, was that sign about bears?” so we had seen very little of the road.

And what a spectacular road it was. Mountains! Lakes! Everything was stunning.  Bizarely you quickly reach a point were you get jaded by it all.  “Oh another amazing mountain view? With nice-looking trees as well I expect? Yes, very nice…”

But then of course the scenary changes – we’d decided to take a trip up to the Mountains to try our luck on the snow.  And suddenly we were driving through what appeared to be Narnia….

Shortly afterwards we got into some tyres and hurtled down a ski slope…
