Little girl on foggy beach, Vancouver Island

On a recent trip to Long Beach on the west coast of Vancouver Island, we headed out in the morning to photograph the surfer’s that the beach is renowned for.  But, what often happens, a heavy fog moved in and changed everything, probably for the better in this case.   The ordinary became the extraordinary, when we came across this very cute little girl with her mother and dog, who made the most of their visit to the Pacific Ocean beach.

Scenic Pacific Coast, photographed from the Wild Pacific Trail

Rocky coastline of the Pacific Ocean, from the Wild Pacific Trail, near Ucluelet, British Columbia.  About as far west as you can drive in Canada, some stunning scenery, but be prepared for some serious rain when visiting the Islands West Coast.  The trail is a fairly easy hike, but bears and cougars are a concern.  During our brief stay two cougars were destroyed in the area.  One was found stalking near the local schoolyard.
