I'm off to Ucluelet, Vancouver Island, for a few days of off shore Pacific Ocean salmon fishing. The area I'm off too is remote (about 20 km) away from Ucluelet. I'm told there is no cell phone service . That also means there will be no opportunity to blog till I return.

|Stunningly beautiful west coast, Vancouver Island.|
|Can't wait to get there and get some action. The big salmon are biting, so I am told.|
|The shoreline there is rugged.|
The environment of tranquil Ucluelet provides a stimulating and dramatic backdrop for working, living, and recreating. The town of Ucluelet offers beaches, multi-use sports fields, community parks, waterfront promenades, restaurants, unique shops and galleries, a mini aquarium and a range of accommodation choices. The motto of Ucluelet is “Living on the Edge” due in part to its location on a peninsula surrounded by water. This marine influence permeates Ucluelet from the climate, to events such as the Pacific Rim Whale Festival, to the design of buildings, which are uniquely West Coast.
Ucluelet is located 288 kilometres (km) northwest of the British Columbia provincial capital, Victoria, on the magnificent outer West Coast of Vancouver Island. The closest city is Port Alberni approximately 110 km to the east. The District of Tofino is 40 km northwest of Ucluelet. In between Tofino and Ucluelet is the Long Beach Unit of Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. Ucluelet provides easy water access to Barkley Sound; a spectacular marine area that features the Broken Group Islands Unit of Pacific Rim National Reserve.
|Awesome beaches in the area.|
|I hope to share a photo like this when I next write a blog.|
