Tofino Storm

Tofino Storm - 9x12", acrylic

Tofino is my absolute favourite place! It's wild, can be stormy, and is beautiful in a very rugged westcoast sort of way. It's on the west coast of Vancouver Island, about a 4.5 hr drive from where I live here in Sooke. We go there about 3-5 times a year, usually on long weekends, almost always camping (rain or shine) and we surf every day. Love it, love it, love it! Our first trip for this year will be the May long weekend - which falls on the third weekend of that month - Victoria Day here in Canada. (Note of interest: this weekend is also called the May Two-Four - a case of beer is often referred to as a "two-four" and many of these are consumed over the holiday ... )

What a great song! It's fantastic. I've heard of this band but hadn't yet heard their music. Thanks.
