Day 31 Tofino, BC

A local bus took us into town this morning. Just like yesterday fog hung low in the sky and the temperature was in the high 50s.

We stopped at an excellent First Nation (Native Indian) gallery and Mavis bought a coat and I got a totem pole carving of a bear to hang in the Katy Leigh. I will cover up a nail hole left by the original owners and will remind me of the carving hanging in the same place on David’s Grand Banks.

I went out whale watching in a 28 ft aluminum boat powered by twin 250 horse Mercurys. The swells at times were 4 ft high which is calm for this part of the world. I was impressed with the captain who could navigate closely round the rocks at 24 kts.  We did see a couple of whales (see photo). All you see is the back and then the tail. We also saw sea otters swimming on their backs, seals, and sea lions.
