After three days in Ucluelet, we move on to Tofino. In Ucluelet I feel filled with raw energy and humbled by the fierce power of nature. Rocks, storms, surging waves, and intense winds fascinate and impress.
Tofino feels more relaxed, more ethereal. Sandy beaches, open spaces, rhythmic waves and rippling tides has me slow down, breathe in, take it all in, and exhale. My breath syncing with the tides, all ebby and flowy, as if by design.
Tofino has always filled my soul, rejuvenated my spirit and I wondered if this would hold true visiting with children. Naptimes, falls, fights, hunger, and whining do not just disappear on holidays after all. Even so, the power of west coast nature is such that we all feel its energy. Better still, this energy combines with my kids playful spirit to enrich our visit even more.
