Wickaninnish Inn

On the foggy morning when we drove the 41 km from Ucluelet to Tofino (Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada) , this famous restaurant at the inn was one of the main photo ops I wanted to see.  We even went inside to enjoy their lovely marine museum and gift shop. 

Can you imagine sitting there and watching the crashing waves during a bombastic storm, while eating a lovely meal! We didn't do it but I can imagine it.

By the way, once you know how to pronounce this inn, it rolls off your tongue delightfully:  wick-a-NIN-ish.

I love this place! I have been here so many many times. Tofino is a grand place full of amazing islands and more. i love the art galleries and locals. i almost became one ectually!
The colours you have here is perfect - just what i remember. so moody and foggy at certain parts. it looks very similar to atlantic canada, tho i never knew that till i got here.
Ginnie Hart: I'm so glad, Sorcha, to find someone who has actually been to this magical place on God's earth! I'm sure you have your own stories to tell. Thanks, as always, for your comment.

This reminds me of a scne from the WicjerMan movies, not sure why but it just does grin Looks creepy, moody and scary.

Ginnie Hart: I can see why you'd think that, Suby. When I climbed over the rocks to this side to get this view, it was kinda scary to me because I was afraid the tide would come in before I could get back to the other side. smile Thanks for stopping by.
Cool shot. I like the waves behind the fog, it adds a lot to the overall snap. well captured.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks for the comment, Sarthak.
Another super, atmospheric shot full of the kind of mood you manage to capture so well. Very well done yet again Ginnie. Regards, Neil.
Ginnie Hart: Thanks a million, Neil. You certainly know how to make me feel good about all the foggy shots. smile If you only have one stab at it, you have to take what Mother Nature gives you, right?!

Melancholy and wonderful. I like that you kept so much sky. Perfect.
Ginnie Hart: Oh Ruth. Thank you!

*blush* I've just been sitting here trying to say your title six times without faltering.

The picture is slightly moody, scarey too with the mist rolling in off the sea. The building looks rather fragile too, although I'm sure it isn't.
Ginnie Hart: Even after knowing how to pronounce this inn, Ellie, I will forget and have quite the time with it. smile

I have seen travel catalog photos of this place in sunlight where it looked much less scary, except for the storms they all allude to, as though we love to see storms while safe inside. Quite an interesting place, I'm sure, if one stayed there for a week!
