Day 33 Tofino, BC
Share
clear

We did a lot of walking today. First we went to the Botanical Garden on the road and then back via the beach. It is on the other side of the peninsula. It was interesting but could use some help.

One of the trails through the rain forest was completely blocked by a tree being cut up and another just petered out in dense brush.

Tonight we took the bus to the Wickaninnish Inn for dinner and walked back. The Inn is a Relais & Chateaux with summer rates starting at $460 a night.  The RV Park was only $57 a night so we could spend our savings on dinner. The restaurant is perched on the jagged rocks overlooking the Pacific. It is a spectacular setting and the meal was a good match. The photo shows the cold soup I had. It was grapefruit juice with Dungeness crab topped with melon and sorbet. Sounds weird but all the flavors worked well together. The wines were nearly all BC and excellent. Every dish was a masterpiece of design and taste. It was a meal and anniversary to remember.
