west coasting

sorry for the silence over here, but i ended up going on a last minute adventure to bc to celebrate my birthday with my friend cam, who shares the same birthday.  every few years we get together to celebrate the day, last time it was in amsterdam (our birthday also happens to be a dutch national holiday, and huge party there), and this time it was on a boat in hot springs cove.

the innchanter is actually a bed and breakfast on a boat, owned by cam's lovely husband shaun.  it's in clayoquot sound, an incredibly beautiful part of the country and only accessible by boat or float plane.  a short kayak ride from the boat takes you to shore, where you can hike a 2km trail through the rainforest and end up at the hot springs.  natural hot springs.  overlooking the ocean.  beyond incredible.


so, um.....we had a nice time.  a really nice time.  this was the sunset on our birthday:

incidentally, if you're looking for a lifestyle change, the innchanter is actually for sale.  you can find out more here.


  1. what a wonderful way to celebrate your birthdays
    that last photograph took my breath away

  2. beautiful photos - the tofino area is one of my favourites on the island. glad you found your way out west to visit for a bit.
