|One of the many great views from the Wild Pacific Trail|
So I am blogging from Ucluelet today, listening to the rain on our tiny 260 sq foot rented cabin roof and watching the occasional fishing boat go by out front. We knew it would rain at least once this trip and according to the forecast it should clear up in an hour or two. This side of Vancouver Island tends to get more moisture, I wish we had a bit more of this rain back home. For now, we are just enjoying sleeping in (hubby more than me, Buddy is right there with him), a very large cup of tea made in one of my big mugs brought from home and am looking forward to a yummy brunch of fruit, bagels and eggs.
Yesterday we did a 8 km hike along the coast of the Wild Pacific Trail here in Ucluelet, such stunning views along the way. And yes, Buddy with his short legs was right there along side us. Then we got home, rested a bit and headed out for an hour kayak. Buddy donned his lifejacket and was there for that as well. I managed to get in 16,000 steps. My goal is still 10,000 steps a day and am currently working on my 7th week of meeting that goal EVERY SINGLE DAY!
Part of the reason we love this cabin is the view to the bay and all the boats that constantly go by from Ucluelet harbour. Tourism is not Ucluelet's primary source of income, fishing is. There is a large commercial fishery right next door to our cabin (behind that tree) which is sometimes noisy but mostly interesting to watch the boats pull up and unload their catch. We have also seen a small grey spotted seal right out front along with eagles, kingfishers and lots of seagulls. Pretty great place for being one of the absolutely cheapest places to stay with a dog on this side of the island.

With all the crap going on in the world sometimes it is nice to go off to a peaceful happy place to hang out with your hubby and your dog, enjoy nature, exercise, eat lots of good things and have a nice cocktail on your balcony with that fabulous view!
