Day 17: Tofino, BC – Errington, BC (via Ucluelet)

At the advice of Blazena we drove to the Ucluelet Aquariam (it was cold, damp and foggy in Tofino so this seemed like the perfect indoor activity).  We were not disappointed.

Day 13: Penticton, BC

We got to sleep in!!!! We still woke up by 7:30 but it was still sleeping in and even better – we did not wake up to an alarm or the necessity of packing up to go somewhere.. ahhh… Instead we leisurely got ready and walked across the street to Coyote Cruises.  We rented inner…
