I remember getting there on a road that went up and down while it also went side to side – a little whoopsy making, even though I was doing the driving. Wiki mentions the three-hour drive from Nanaimo and implies that it’s the same from Victoria (it ain’t – add an hour and a half). But the egregious omission is the road’s simultaneous up-and-down and side-to-side movement.
I remember going out on a whale-watching boat – more than a little whoopsy making, even though there were no whales to be watched that day.
I remember a wonderful, unspoiled sandy beach that stretched away forever.
I remember an artsy town with boat and bicycle rental places, cafes, and bakeries. I think that was Tofino. I remember a less new-age logging-and-fishing town – Ucluelet?
I remember getting out of there on the road that went up and down while it also went side to side – enough whoopsy making again that I had to stop at the first pull-out to get out and walk around.
But hey. Totally worth it.
Go by air.
