Someone once told us that Tofino was what would happen if Santa Cruz was in Alaska. We're feeling that plus a little bit of the remote resourcefulness and grassroots entrepreneurship of Tulum. I'm not sure if it just here, Vancouver Island, BC or Canada-wide, but instead of a cursory "How's it goin'?" everyone here asks "How's your day been?" or "What do you have planned for the rest of the day?" And they seem to really want to hear your answer. So far, the parents we've run into with similar age kids at the beach or playground have turned out to be the owners or restaurants, tour companies or surf shops and are excited to recommend kid friendly activities around town. They leave us with a friendly "Enjoy your visit!" While we're stuck inside this afternoon while the rain is falling (and ripping DVD's from the lending library at the campground in preparation for the remote section of the Cassiar in a few weeks), we're excited to have one more full day to explore the town. #Tofino #vancouverisland
