In the begninning of April, our class took a final trip to the west coast of Vancouver Island where we spent four days in Tofino and Ucluelet. It was a blast! We visited Cathedral Grove, checked out Long Beach, did some whale-watching, sea kayaking, and went fishing for salmon & crab. It was wicked!!! And to top it all off, on the last night we were there... we ate all the salmon and crab we caught at a BBQ on the beach... hosted by our teachers. Freshly caught & cooked seafood, alcohol, and the beach... couldn't have been a better way to end the trip!! (Sorry, I never took any pictures of the BBQ, too busy [drunk])

And unfortunately these will be the last pictures of the fabulous trips I go on while at school because I am now done my studies at BCIT... I'M FINALLY FREE!!! :party0010:

Hopefully I will be able to see some of you out in the bush as summer camping season slowly approaches. Yeehaw!!! Hope you all are doing well and hope to see you all soon!!!
