Lots I could say, but I’ll let the pics do the talking. Our Cruise from Ucluelet to Ahousaht village in Matilda cove. A hike, a hot spring and a beautiful warm beach.
Passing Trawler as we leave Ucluelet
Entrance to Ucluelet harbour
Heading in as we head out.
Raising sail in a heavy swell was hard work
Enjoying the view of the open Pacific
the long coast between Ucluelet and Tofino

Heading out for Ahousaht
Fine day for a sail
Stopping off in an unnamed cove for fishing and sunbathing on beach
Fainleog from beach
Didn’t get a salmon but a couple of good hits, and one jumped out of the water right behind me.
hard to believe its the open ocean
I didn’t catch a salmon but this guy will do.
Heading to Ahousaht and Matilda Cove
Lovely evening run
Enjoying the sunset
Meares Island glowing in last light of day.
Hell of a messy galley!
End of a long day
Ahousaht village by night.
Famous Ahousaht general store
Old growth tree
Beach trail goes through very thick and pristine old growth forest.
Good reason to wear gumboots when hiking to beach
White pine cone. Not very common on the coast
Old growth coastal swamp. Not all old growth means massive trees.
Enjoying the sun
Wolf track. It was huge.
What’s old growth without big trees?
the beach beckons!
Peaceful, remote and very fine warm sand.
We had the place to ourselves.
On the way back after a day at the beach. It was hot!
I need a swim.
Very old and rustic hot spring pool
Matilda inlet from pool
Tracy slowly getting in. The water was only as "warm" as a public swimming pool
Refreshing once you get in. It was so private and verdant.
Just what I needed. Perfect end to the day.
If you explore the bottom you can feel places where hot water percolates in.
