Nothing like a Pacific sunset:
We had a glorious day here – we took a long, leisurely walk on “our” beach this morning, then later around lunch time went to look at the high tide.
and for us, that never gets old. I’m sure if I look in my photos from our stay last year, I’ll have a hundred or so identical shots.
I forgot to mention how Ava handled her first ferry ride on Sunday:
Yeah, I needn’t have worried. She wasn’t bothered at all by the (minimal) noise. We crossed on one of the new ferries, the Coastal Renaissance. We were right at the front of the vessel on the top vehicle deck and it was very quiet. Windy as hell, but very engine-noise quiet.
Yesterday we didn’t go all the way to the end of the beach and park boundary, but this morning we did.

We spent the afternoon in Tofino; the highlight was my annual visit to Knits by the Sea. Ellie has such great stock; I bought all local/BC yarns except for a couple of skeins of Malabrigo – one sock yarn and one worsted. Last year I feasted on local yarns as well.
For knitting I brought along the two Tiny Tea Leaves cardigans, my current socks in progress and two lonely balls of Regia sock yarn in case I ran out. However, after my visit to Ellie’s today, I want to toss all that aside and start a pair of socks for me in one of the delicious yarns I bought. And why not? It’s my vacation! However, I don’t have my swift with me …
