Wanna Know What I've Been Up To?
If you've been wondering where I've been.....here's a photo! It was taken in Tofino.
I've been away for two weeks on holidays. We went to Ainsworth natural Hot Springs first. It has a natural cave from which the water comes and flows into the cave, and then into the pools. While sitting in the hot pools you're overlooking a large lake and beautiful mountains.
It's especially incredible in the Spring or Fall, when the weather is a bit cooler. The pools have a lovely mist floating over the water, and the mountains have snow on them. It's just beautiful!!
Here is a photo of the view from the road...I don't have a photo of the pools and the mountains (didn't want to bring a camera in).
We also went to Long Beach on Vancouver Island. This beach is huge, and there's no words to describe it short of majestic. One part has gorgeous sand on it with mounds of drift wood and shells. Surfers are all over the crashing waters.
Another part has little rocks, shells and driftwood everywhere. Here there are also large rocks coming out of the waters, so it's not a great spot for the surfers, but beaufitul nonetheless.
I took the video, so am not in it. My husband, and my friends' sister are in it.
We visited with lots of family on the Island, plus I met up with my oldest friend. She recently found me on FB, and got a hold of me. It had been over 25 years. She managed the Tofino Inlet Cottages and House that we stayed at. What an incredible place, and the scenery...GORGEOUS!!
Anyway, hope you enjoy the video and the snapshot.
