Vancouver Island – Part 1

Well, Mr. Bean and I are back from Vancouver Island – it was wonderful! Other than the first day, we had lovely weather. Rest assured that I did take many, many pictures – so many that I have a few posts in the works.

I came back to 850+ items in my google reader, so I’m sorry that it’ll take a while for me to get to everything, especially since I need to finish my final technical report for my internship.

So what did we do? First we took the ferry from Vancouver to Vancouver Island:

This is a model of what it looks like:

I love how they tell us that there are kid’s lifejackets.

We arrived at my family’s cottage to this:

Mr. Bean and I had not one, but two chances to go to the West Coast of the Island. First we went to China Beach on the Juan de Fuca trail.

My Sea Pineapple

There was a really neat cliff on one edge of the beach – part of it was raining:

And there was a tree.

We also had the chance to walk through the temperate rainforest – Mr. Bean was a champion and walked across a fallen tree.

We also went to Tofino and Long Beach.

You can’t really see it, but my foot was wounded by some barnacles whilst I was swimming. Like the ones on these mussels:

There is little more that I like than jumping in the Pacific Ocean:
