We didn't go far from Tofino today, but spent the time exploring Tofino Inlet. Unfortunately, the weather was not very co-operative, but we did manage to get out in the dingy and motor up the Kennedy River which was really cool. We were there at high tide, so the trees were dragging their branches right down to the water level, and with the warm rain dripping, we could almost imagine that we were floating down the Amazon, listening to the birds and keeping a sharp eye out for crocks.
