|After injuring my arm in a climbing fall, I had to switch to hiking mode. Highlights for me were:|
+Catching crabs to boil while waiting for hours at the Nitinat Narrows for a boat to ferry me over.
+Watching a grey whale in shallow water scouring the mud bottom and flipping around
+Some friendly Native American guy that was selling chips and hot dogs and cold beverages on a long and boring gravel beach.
-slipping off the boards in a skunk cabbage swamp and going into black hip-deep icy cold mud.
-throwing everything I could find at the racoons during a long night where they just wouldn't give up.

|July 28 to August 2, 2013. Great trip and great weather. Definitely not like hiking in the mountains, but it was a fun adventure I will always remember. It was also fun to spend a few days in Victoria. Worth the time and effort spent in planning.|

|Not sure about the year... This was one of the BEST vacations - Vancouver Island! Loved this place! We only got to do a day trip on the West Coast Trail, but it was enough to get a sense of the grandeur and beauty of the area! Stayed at the most delightful B&B - I wish I wrote down the name... Should return!|

|June 5 to June 11, 2005. Had reasonably good weather for June, not much rain. Loved all the adventure, cable cars across rivers, boardwalks, tidal shelves... One of the best hikes I have ever done. The highlight was definitely the fresh crab at Nitinat Narrows.|
