“Up Island” the trip to Ucluelet BC

The view from our rental in Ucluelet….not bad to wake up to every

Having left beautiful Victoria, BC…we headed “Up Island” through Chemainus ( the town of murals) friendly people, great pottery and FUDGE!!  

The drive took us though Parksville with its magnificent public beaches and across to Port Alberni ( a very french speaking town) with the “tall trees” in nearby Cathedral Grove at MacMillian Park….

We headed to the Pacific Rim on the West Coast of Vancouver Island with its majestic mix of rugged wilderness and old growth rain forests to the towns of Ucluelet and Tofino.  Be prepared for some steep and very winding roads, thankfully, well maintained!

One of the many fishing vessels in Ucluelet Harbor….no doubt…responsible for all the fresh seafood…yum!
