Tofino Part 2

The second morning we were in Tofino, we hiked down to Combers Beach and walked 2+ kilometers along the foggy beach at lowest tide up to Green Point. On the beach at Green Point, there is a rock formation that is accessible only during lowest tide- because these rocks are underwater most of the time, they are a great place to find all sorts of sea creatures. Jeff’s parents discovered this while camping at Green Point a few years back and made sure we got there during the narrow window of low tide when it is accessible. I think for all of us, it was one of the best parts of the trip.
