I think the West Coast is kind of magical sometimes. So crazily stunning I can hardly stand it. The the three and a half days in Tofino were chillier than expected thanks to mornings full of fog and not bringing enough fleece, but afternoons and evening on the beach were perfect for sitting down with a good book before heading two minutes to our campsite to make dinner and a campfire. Since we were both camping and road-tripping back to Courtenay later in the week, we planned the first three days of meals to eat while camping, then left it open to other options the remainder of the trip. Here’s a sampling of the views and eats from Vancouver Island.
Dinner at Powerhouse Living Foods in Nanaimo before the ferry line-up: Dave had this raw pizza and I devoured this monster taco salad.
Overall a relaxing trip on Vancouver Island. You’ll also find it doesn’t take much effort to find vegan food even in the small towns – most of them still have natural foods grocers you can stock up at for any specialty items. I wish summer was longer so I could plan more exploring soon!
