the ocean

and let me breathe the salty air-3

There are times in my life when my soul craves the mountains, and there are times when it craves the sea.  In one month I’ll be storm watching on the west coast of Vancouver Island with some great friends.  Nature is a calming presence in my life, one of the few.  Being surrounded by the towering, majestic peaks of the Canadian Rockies is a feeling I wish I could describe accurately.  Although the mountains hold my heart, the sea sets it free.  I have had some breath-taking experiences on the Pacific Ocean, which is what inspired me to design the above quote.  I plan on sharing a few of these experiences over the next few months, while hopefully creating new ones.

First up, Tofino.
