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!! 😉

One Incredible Moment


“Blessed are the meek,” Jesus explained.
Blessed are the available.
Blessed are the conduits, the tunnels, the tools…
That’s why the announcement went first to the shepherds. They didn’t ask God if He was sure He knew what He was doing.
Had the Angel gone to theologians, they would have first consulted their commentaries. Had he gone to the elite, they would have looked around to see if anyone was watching. Had he gone to the successful, they would have first looked at their calendars.
So he went to the shepherds. Men who didn’t have a reputation to protect or an ax to grind or a ladder to climb. Men who didn’t know enough to tell God that angels don’t sing to sheep and that messiahs aren’t found wrapped in rags and sleeping in a feed trough…
So… While the theologians were sleeping and the elite were dreaming and the successful were snoring, the meek were kneeling. They were kneeling before the ONE only the meek will see.
The shepherds were utterly changed after the news… ARE YOU?
