I am in love with Tofino. Tofino is the Canadian version of Hawaii.
Well, almost. I live in Duncan on Vancouver island, and Tofino is
about a 4 hour drive from here. What’s so great about Tofino you might
ask? Personally, I think it is one of the most beautiful places on the
island that is famous for its beaches, surfing, deserted WWll bomber,
Wait…an abandoned WWll bomber?!? Yes! Back in 1945 a WWll bomber
crashed onto land shortly after takeoff. Ever since, people have been
able to hike to the scene if they were willing to walk 5 km through a
muddy forest. I hiked to the plane with my dad, and got to see the
popular attraction. Although not many people can get to it, unless you
are in good condition to power through a forest.
I actually got to sit on the top of it! It is pretty neat-o.
After a long, hot, and sweaty hike it is extremely refreshing to grab a taco at Tacofino and head over to Longbeach! This is where most of the surfers go to catch some massive
waves. I have never been further than Vancouver in my life, so going
to Tofino is a real treat because I feel as though I am in Hawaii.
When you’re livin’ it up in Tofino for a weekend, you can’t go without
saying “surfs up!” Or, “hang loose man”.
This is such a desireable place to be. People from all over the world come to Tofino and absolutely love it. I always end up trying something new everytime I go! As Miss Teen Vancouver Island 2016, I am proud to say that I have the opportunity to represent this island. I couldn’t ask for a better place to live.
