A welcome sight after driving through rain, sleet, and snow on our way to Tofino.
We’d been watching the weather forecast all week, and thankfully our drive over to Tofino was mostly just a wet one, despite the recent snowfall. After settling in at our cottage, we noticed the clouds were breaking and there was a hint of sunshine to the west. That promise of sunshine right at the end of the day was enough to tempt us outside for a 10-minute walk to the beach. And we were well rewarded with a lovely colourful, if still cloudy, sunset. We walked the beach until last light, pausing to admire an eagle that circled overhead and dropped down to drink from the creek running onto the beach barely 40 m from us, before heading back to the cabin for dinner. A very satisfying way to end the day.
