S/V Hello World

From Tofino, we took a small boat an hour and a half north, past two gray whales, to Maquinna Marine Provincial Park, where we disembarked to walk along this boardwalk through old-growth cedar trees. Many of the planks have been replaced by mariners with their engraved ship names, a delightful found poem to read as you walk. After about a half hour along this boardwalk, we came to a hot springs waterfall flowing into five pools down to the ocean. All four of us soaked in the pools with temperature the perfect blend of very hot water and very cold waves coming gently in. Then we strolled back along the boardwalk to jump on the boat back to Tofino, past otters and bald eagles this time. I wished I'd photographed or copied down each plank. I'll have to go back.
