Spent a pleasant day and a half at anchor in Effingham bay, Effingham Island waiting for a forecast storm. The hike across the island was really cool. Overgrown and muddy but incredible to really get into the rain forest.

Do the walks through the rainforest and along the beaches. All stunning. And all free in Canada's 150 birthday.

Strongly reccomend Cobblewood Guest House in Tofino if you are looking for a comfortable quiet stay. Also, try the Shelter restaurant. You will love the ambiance, food and local beers on tap.
