We left Tofino this morning, after another rollicking play session on the beach for the dogs. We had 300 kilometres to cover, and the first half of it was through some rather remote mountains, with beautiful scenery; however the road was to be closed for construction from 12 to 1pm, so we had to get a move on in order to make it through before the closure happened.
We stopped back in at Cowichan Bay and let the dogs have a dip in the water there. The tide was low and the shore was...gooey. But they had fun anyway. Though they smell kind of fishy now.
We made it to Victoria, to the airbnb we will be staying at for the next 4 nights, and we met up with B&D, two extremely special friends, who have travelled all the way from St Louis to spend time with us here. B will be doing a half-Ironman triathlon here on Sunday. We've already made some exciting plans for the next few days.
In the meantime, a few last shots from Tofino.
