Not since the girls brought me breakfast for Mother's Day. Cheerios, toast and tea.... I think?
Wow, I never would have expected to see such vibrant colours painted on these moving objects. Sea cucumbers, sunflower starfish, hermit crabs, algae, octopus, and more.
We had the opportunity to hold starfish, catch a crab in the open tanks.

Not just your regular hot dog stand! Fresh baked, organic, free run, vegetarian, raw, vegan, meat lover, healthy and not so healthy chow. (what a mouthful)
Paige suggested Smoked salmon sliders topped with grain fed naturally smoked bacon with a side of organic greens drizzled with Vancouver blueberry balsamic vinegarette. Yummy in the Tummy. Everything in the area is locally sourced and fresh. Especially the fish.
Unique and unsual shoppes. The murals on the building, are beautiful. Much like the graffiti we found in Spain. Art in its best form.

Next: Off to hike the "Wild Pacific Trail" or "Life on the Edge" in Ucluelet. This trail skirts the rugged west coast of Vancouver Island, where ancient rain forests meets the Pacific Ocean.

Our hike overlooks Barkley Sound and Broken Islands in Pacific Rim National Park.
We feel like we are in an episode of the Ewok's forest from Star Wars.
Walking under the mossy forest canopy in the misty rain listening to the stormy waves crashing against the rocks. The Light House sounds the fog to alert sailors (if any are at sea) The photographs don't even come close to the mythological landscape.

Trees looking like creatures with their branches winding out to encompass you when your not looking! You won't catch me in here after dark, as I was already looking over my shoulder through the misty rain, thinking something was behind me.
Treated to artisan yeast free breads, grain fed chicken, lamb steak with warmed kale, our taste buds were treated to an exquisite evening.
Happy anniversary! a perfect day (even in the rain)
I feel spoiled on this trip............. Breakfast in bed....beaches on the ocean.....fabulous dinners....wine.....romance.....
