We had a little weekend getaway in Tofino the past couple of days.

We wanted to go during low season for our first trip there because it is such a small town and it gets pretty touristy during the summer. While the weather was mostly grey and rainy, blue skies did appear every now and then, and the weather didn't keep us from exploring the beaches and doing some small hikes.

Beau had lots of fun on the beach too, though it was a little windy.

However, the wind did make for some good surfing.

The highlight of the trip was definitely the food. We had two of the most delicious dinners, at Shelter (pan-seared wild salmon with spot prawn risotto and apple honey beurre blanc, and yellow thai curry with mussels, clams, halibut, salmon, shrimp, and banana leaf steamed rice) and Sobo (halibut with yukon gold mashed potatoes and carrot puree, and bouillabaisse), not to mention the most fantastic candied salmon we've ever tried. Tofino is a fishing town, so the seafood is really fresh, literally right off the boat, and it was amazing. We wished we could have stayed longer to try more.
