Approaching the Edge

The family and I had a fantastic time in Tofino over the weekend. This was our first of three scheduled trips this summer and we’re off to a very good start. The area around Tofino is one of my favourite places in all of British Columbia and my wife and I have been there countless times over the 11 years we’ve been together. Our children have been camping there since they were four months old, so I can’t even begin to imagine how many times will they will visit in their lifetime.

On this trip, my son began to play in the surf a little more. He gathered the courage to run into the water between waves and stand on a large, submerged boulder before running from the next incoming wave. In the not too distant future, that boulder will seem like a pebble to him. My daughter is still a little worried about the water and doesn’t like to see others go in, but that will change quickly enough.
