It was a beautiful morning in Tofino, the sun was shining and there was a cool autumn chill to the air. We made our way down to the dock to repack our kayaks and head off.
We had only had five days off but it took a while to get comfy in the boats again. Ngaio kept saying she didn’t fit in her boat and she was swearing that her legs had gotten longer. We paddled out of the harbour and onto the coast, passing little beaches tucked away in the rocks.
We passed some of the bigger beaches near Tofino where the swell was pumping, no wonder it’s a surf destination. The further we paddled the less houses we saw, until eventually it was just us and the coast again (there was a main road just off the coast but we couldn’t see that).
