Well Riley figured she'd had enough of the big city, so we decided to hop in the truck and head out to Tofino.

When we got there, it was so nice and sunny that we had to stop and enjoy the good weather.

Riley agreed that it was very nice out.

Time to just chillax

It wasn't long before her nose for trouble picked up something.

The skies suddenly started to darken.

The waves began to rise.

I started to recall a sign passed earlier on the highway, what did it say again?

Tammy decided to seek higher ground.

I followed suit.

I figured it would take someone with some big balls to brave this storm.

I figured being close to the water wasn't a good thing.

We decided to book it outta there..

And headed for the tall trees to find shelter.

Riley found the perfect spot to stay dry.

But the winds were so strong, that it took everything I had to keep the trees from blowing down.

I darned near slipped a disc trying to run for cover.

All of a sudden there was a loud buzzing sound, we couldn't figure out what it was, turns out, it was the alarm clock, we'd slept in and dreamed the whole thing! :D
