Following a great night’s sleep, Diana and I puttered around Ucluelet, visiting every shop we could find. A little drizzle fell on us, but we had fun anyway. We shopped around and booked a fishing charter for tomorrow before wandering the shoreline of Big Beach. The beach consisted of many rock outcroppings punctuated with soft sand and rimmed by beached, sun-bleached logs. I found a nice orange starfish for Diana and between the two of us, we collected a few pretty shells. Everywhere, kelp hung from tide-exposed rocks, punctuated by white barnacles and black muscles. This first shot is a close-up of about 5 inches of barnacles.
