In September when we were in British Columbia, one of the highlights was spending 3 days in the Pacific Rim National Park on Vancouver Island. If you only take one trip in your entire life, visit here.
The natural beauty is breath-taking and much of it is still unspoiled.
Many people come here to visit and end up staying forever. Once you visit, you'll see why.
Here are some photos from our stop at Long Beach.
A tributary runs over the beach and to the ocean from the forest backdrop.
Giant kelp washed up on shore like some strange creature from the black lagoon.
Surfers wait for the perfect wave at Long Beach in late September. The Pacific Ocean is pretty cold this time of year so they wear full body suits.

Long Beach in Pacific Rim National Park is the longest natural beach on Vancouver Island.
