In Tofino, East Clayoquot Sound
Under sail in the big rolling Pacific swells and a SE wind that we wished was stronger, we trundled right up the coast past thundering breakers, squadrons of pelicans (??) and two humpback whales spy-hopping to get a look at us. Also saw the first sooty shearwaters of the trip. Have been counting marbled murrelets for a friend who studies them. The boat performed magnificently and we are now at anchor in Tofino Harbor, tired but pleased. After today, we figure internet access might be more limited to the north of here.
