I haven’t seen the Pacific in the lifetime that I remember – my family came out here when I was about two years old, I think. We have finally arrived on Vancouver Island, after a summer of waiting for the time to come.
On our first full day we went to a beach, and the smell was so familiar. The kid’s first real look at the ocean, the waves and the tides. Gigantic BC seagulls.
I love the water. I love being on boats. I love the smell of it, the peace of it. But the Pacific, that’s Joe’s ocean.
There’s more to do here, we have a week, but we wanted to eat seafood and wade in the water and we’ve accomplished both.
Now we just have to plan to get to the Atlantic.
