Surfboards, sand and a parrot
It is as west coast as it gets, next stop Japan…so it’s best to avoid the riptides. It’s throw back to simpler times…cell service is spotty but you really don’t care. Phones are tucked away and turned off. People are just hanging out, staring at wide open waves and watching the wetsuits rise and ride a wave, even if only for the briefest of moments.
Strangers tune into each other and talk. Children make fast friends. A stretch of sand as far as the eye can see, captivates young, small, tall and old…and every now and then when you are just chilling out on the beach with the sand and the surfers you might even meet a parrot. It’s Tofino time..and believe me it is a magical place.
Is there a place where you can just let your hair down and chill?
