Soggy Van Living
We’re in Tofino!
It’s been sunny.
Today, however, it pours.
My husband reminded me this morning that we are, in fact, in a coastal rainforest. It’s only natural…
So we bend and adapt with the weather, falling into rhythm. Sitka goes for her mandatory Long Beach morning walk – she enthusiastically jumps up and down by the van door, only to be greeted with a sideways heavy mist that mimics island winter rains. She too embraces it; she never turns down a beach walk.
We surf. I flop around in the choppy water, churning and gasping in the unpredictable waves. I can hardly call it surfing really. More like flailing. Dan stays out for a while, continuing to progress in this oddly impossible sport.
Today I am grateful for outdoor showers to wash off the salt water; to feel human again.
I am grateful for my solar powered blow dryer. DRY. WARM. MMM.
