A Getaway /a Birthday surprise /a Puke party @Tofino!


Tofino is a small district on Vancouver Island, off Canada’s west coast. It sprawls on a peninsula within Clayoquot Sound, characterized by wild natural scenery including lakes, inlets and ancient rainforest. Sandy beaches with year-round surfing facilities include Cox Bay, Chesterman Beach and popular Long Beach, part of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. The relaxed town of Tofino sits on the peninsula’s tip. (Google source)

In case you’re wondering what that title was, please, follow us through the pictures. They will tell you about our family’s very interesting 3 days getaway in Tofino, enjoy!

On our way, we stopped at Cathedral Grove MacMillan Provincial Park, where you can admire majestic old trees.

Now, the best and craziest part was that we saw 4 grey whales!! But we were too busy puking… so we ended up not taking pictures. In our family, we have FUN together, we STICK together and we PUKE together!! 😉

 

 

 

 

Sunshine where are you?


Today, it’s snowing AGAIN on Vancouver Island! Not that I don’t like that, I love watching the snow flakes falling from my living room windows.
Well, this is what worries me… 20160105_162950000_iOS

Mine is going to be white!
