Well we took Andra and the family for our long anticipated trip to Tofino to visit the beaches.  Unfortunately after 6 weeks of perfect weather we arrived to heavy rain and fog.  Tried briefly to look at a beach but had to abandon .  What a waste.

We had booked a cabin in Ucluelet for the night so settled in to play cards and wait out the storm.

The next morning it stopped raining so we were able to explore the area.  In the past whenever we travelled to the west side of the island we had always gone to Tofino or the beaches.  Turns out that there is actually more to see and do in Ucluelet than there is Tofino.  Great hiking trails and views.  We did one hike along the coast and then drove to the lighthouse at the point.    So the trip across was not a total loss.
