vacations

Back from the Rim

I didn’t post last weekend because I was in Tofino, walking endless beaches

Long Beach at low tide -- endless sands.

Watching waves break — again and again and again and again…

Looking at plants without having to think about watering or weeding.

Watching people trying to surf (sorry, no pictures) and deciding that surfing must be hard work. And of course enjoying great meals, shopping for frivolous items and all the other good vacation stuff.  Tofino is only 300 km. (about 150 miles) from Victoria, but feels like a different planet.

And now back to work and the dessicated garden…
