Tofino, BC Photo Diary

MacMillan Provincial Park

I managed to live on Vancouver Island for over four years, and never made the four hour trek up to Tofino. Known across the globe for its surfing, this town is a tourist hub year round. I have totally fallen in love with this coastal town and its hippie feel. If I ever have the chance, I would definitely live here (and am potentially planning a long term stay here sometime soon!!!).

What better way to show your love for a place than to photograph it right? And my heart definitely feels full after spending time here.

So here is Tofino through my eyes (or lens)! I hope you can get a feel for this gorgeous corner of the world, and to help with that, I’ve added some captions, thoughts, etc…

    Awesome photo’s! We are in Tofina at the moment and it’s raining today as well, but the locals insist that’s the best time to visit;-)
