Even better than waking up to the sound of waves crashing from your hotel room, is waking up to a glorious sunrise from the balcony – just as you’ll have seen in my previous blog.
Determined to make the most of the day before leaving – and that extra hour thanks to the clocks going back! – we got up and got ready to hike. Thanks to the lovely hotel we were staying in, our first walk was just a stone’s throw away.
After our first walk, it was time to get back into the car and beach hop! This beach was a lovely contrast to the fierce waves against the black rocks that the island is so well known for.
Retracing our steps back to the sunset lighthouse, we received a pretty scary reminder…
This also marks the start of the beautiful Wild Pacific Trail, so we set off to see what it had to offer.
What an inspiring quote, given the background!
Having spent all morning walking, we saw some beautiful sights, from the powerful waves to the rugged rocks and snowy mountain tops. It was something very special!
Of course, we had to stop to refuel before a snowy drive back to Nanaimo to catch our ferry. Check out The Blue Room Bistro in Ucluelet for a decent brekkie!
An awesome trip from start to finish on the Island – I’ll for sure be back!
