Believe it or not, as much as I love Victoria, I have to leave and go on vacation once in a while. I've been fortunate to take time off in Ucluelet on two occasions this year. I stayed at a friend's waterfront townhouse and enjoyed the view through floor to ceiling windows. Is there anything more beautiful than the West Coast? I don't think so. Is there anything better than being on a beach in the summertime? I don't think so. If you are undecided, I highly recommend some time on this peninsula for research. Don't rush it... Surf, kayak, hike, camp, relax, and do all the activities required to make an informed decision.
Ucluelet has a population of about 2,000 people but the town swells in the summertime. Tourists know the benefit of this sleepy little town that rests so close to Long Beach and the Pacific Rim National Park. There is accommodation ranging from campgrounds to the most lavish of resorts. Investors take note - this town is full of opportunities. Along with my friend's townhouse, several suites at the new resorts are for sale. Let me know if you want more information.
The majority of my photos come from different sections of the Wild Pacific Trail. This trail is a delight that almost any age group can enjoy. There are occasional ups and downs but the terrain remains flat and easy to walk on. Wire railings are set up to keep you from straying too close to the edge. Creeks are bridged by sturdy bridges with anti slip traction and sturdy wood railings. The trail edges in and out of the rainforest and has several areas with benches to take in the panoramic views.
Enough from me, I will let the camera do the rest of the talking. K
