Life on California's beautiful Central Coast

Taking on Tofino

OK. I am now going to show you some great photos and then tell you that what looks lovely, is actually not so great.

I have been wanting to come to Tofino for about five years. The impression I’ve gotten today is that if I’d acted on that impulse five years ago, this place might not have been as discovered.. and, sorry to say, ruined, as it is now.

There are a lot of tourists here, and they are not on their best behavior. They are mainly European and intent on having a good time (as evidenced by all the beer and Jagermeister bottles they left behind on the beach). They’ve trashed the campground we’re staying at, which is ridiculously expensive. I don’t want to whine, so I’ll just say that we won’t be staying here more than one night, and that I’m kind of bummed.
