We just spent a stunning week in Tofino, BC. It’s famous for the rugged coastline and natural beauty. People go there to kayak, surf, whale and bear watch. We went to chill.
Traveling in a camper allows you to get closer to nature. Internet availability was scarce to non existent which gave us lots of incentive to relax. We read, walked the beaches and enjoyed local restaurants.
We waited in line for over an hour to eat fish tacos from this famous food truck, called Tacofino. They were worth the wait!
I’m pretty sure I’ve eaten my bodyweight in fish tacos during this trip and see a diet in my future.
The mornings started off foggy on the west coast of Vancouver Island, but by early afternoon the blue sky is crystal clear.
Sunsets are stunning from the beach at Crystal Cove.
We had a small trailer snafu during our drive back to Parksville. Unbeknownst to us, while driving, a cabinet door flew open. The plates crashed into the kitchen sink and one of them turned the faucet on. Sadly, the plug was in the drain. How’s that for bad luck?
When we opened the door to set up camp, we discovered that gallons water had flooded the floor. Everything was saturated, including my laptop.
Our learning curve is steep with this trailer, but we’re soldiering on 🙂
We spent the next morning with a rented shop vac, sucking water out of our drenched carpeting. That afternoon we started running a dehumidifier and think things dried out pretty well.
We’ve headed home to California now. I can’t wait to sleep in my own bed after 3 1/2 weeks in this tiny camper.
Traveling by RV isn’t for sissies!
Have a great week.
