Anne Visits Vancouver Island, September 2009

These are (mostly) her photos. My video will follow later.

Obviously, we didn't take this photo. :-)

A Trip to Tofino
September 16-18, 2009

We drive up to Tofino and visit Cathedral Grove, Port Alberni and Ucluelet, and go whale watching.

Our hotel is at the far end of the beach.

Despite the large amount of grey in the Tofino photos, the little trip was a very enjoyable experience.
The weather was warm and the sun broke through occasionally. Except for the second evening, it was mostly dry with a few sprinkles.
We felt the weather added to the atmosphere and did not detract from it.

The most perfect one acre garden in Victoria. The property of the late Prince and Princess Abkhazi, the garden is now maintained by the volunteers of the Land Conservancy.
