So here’s another batch of pictures from my recent mini-vacation. This one was taken on the first day—not so sunny, but very pretty nonetheless.
These photos are from a different, relatively new set of hiking trails on the west coast of Vancouver Island, called the Wild Pacific Trail. No sandy beaches such as you find at Long Beach here, these are all rocky headlands and pounding waves.
On a nice day it’s quite calm, but these are marketed as a great place for stormwatching, and I can believe it.
And I have to say these are probably the best-built trails I’ve ever walked on. (They are meticulously maintained; there were signs of seasonal repair work and during a torrential downpour on one long walk there wasn’t a sign of a puddle, the drainage is amazing. Quite a contrast to the rugged scenery they take you through!
