Thursday 30th July 2015……one day road trip!!!!

Today was going to be a long driving day for me…..the story is that Heather and Kirby's son Ben works in Ucluelet as a kayak guide and he has the one of the cars with him but Zach is wanting the car to take back to university in Washington next month…so someone had to drive the truck to Ucluelet and exchange it for the car and I volunteered.

It was a good drive and I arrived at Ben’s work place but he was out guiding but his girl friend Mia was there and we exchanged vehicles so now I left the

Some of my long time readers may remember this car it actually was mine and her name is Pili and I gave it to Heather and Kirby a few years ago…..so it was nice to drive her again.

As the day was so wonderful I took advantage and went to the closest beach

The beaches in this area are famed for being very dangerous but good surfing beaches but today the waves were calm but the water very cold…..
