Tofino: Low tide and high tide at MacKenzie Beach

Well, it took a bit of wrangling to get everybody back in the car after stopping at Cathedral Grove. BT Mendelbaum, disbarred, decided to check the various parked cars for signs of premature rust (something about a class action of some sort), and G.G. Blynn wandered off the path entirely looking for "fresh powder" apparently.

Finally, we arrived at Tofino and MacKenzie Beach, a wee bit later than expected. Group road trips are never that easy.

The tide was out. The air was cool but calm, and the clouds heavy. It would snow a bit this night.

The next morning, the tide was coming in, crashing against the rocks with a frenzy. The air was cold and the wind brisk.

"I could surf in this stuff," said Jeem to no one in particular.

"Not near those rocks I hope," was Sherry's response.

"No. Out there." And with that, Jeem was off to find a wet suit and a board. Tomorrow: surf's up.
