|View from our townhouse in Ucluelet. First day was wet and rainy.|
|Next day was beautiful and sunny, with a big blue sky.|
|Birthday cake. I didn't bring supplies so we bought a box of cake mix and made icing from melted chocolate. Not the world's most amazing cake but totally fine for the circumstances. However next year I will be more prepared!|
|Cool thistle. Never thought I'd write those words.|
|There was some truly kooky seaweed on Big Beach in Ucluelet.|
|And some beautiful seaweed too.|
|We scattered dried flower petals in the ocean on his birthday. |
These are petals from some of the flowers we have bought for him over the last 3 years.
|Scattering flower petals|
|Nature's beauty was all around us.|
Nature's relentless fierceness too - we felt the 4.6 magnitude earthquake that happened while we were there.
|Locks along the Wild Pacific Trail. |
There was a bench at this spot dedicated to a little boy who died just after his 2nd birthday.
|Wild beastie running through the woods|
|I could have watched these crashing waves forever.|
|Building sand castles|
|Busy yet peaceful|
|Light streaming through|
|Fantastic care package waiting for us when we got back. Thank you Michelle & Jonathan! xo|
