Beach and Foodie Heaven, Vancouver Island

Well, here is a spoiler alert! Kim and John said today they must have died and gone to foodie heaven! They went to an amazing restaurant in Ucluelet tonight called Pluvio. They said it rivaled the restaurant they went to years ago in Peru called Maido, for best meal ever. Now, that says a lot, because Maido is rated one of the best restaurants in the world.

So, let’s start with the end of the day and work our way backwards…..lol 👍😉

Kim was searching best places to eat and ran across this one. She tried to make a reservation, but they were booked solid! Darn it! Well, keep trying, I say! So, lucky for them they got in on a cancellation. They arrived for their 3 hour adventure….John had the three course meal and Kim had the chef tasting menu with wine pairings. All they can say is highly recommended and go here! They said it was the best meal ever, the service was amazing, and the wine was awesome too! They said they died and went to foodie heaven!

We had a great day today! Woke up and the sun was shining. This morning was family photo day. Kim and John arranged to have a local photographer take our pictures. Before our session, we went to burn off some energy at MacKenzie Beach which is where we are staying. We had a great time running around…we can’t get enough of the chase! I’m always the instigator 🙂

Then Marnie met up with us and took a bunch of pictures. We think she is a miracle worker! How she can take pictures of 3 dogs and 2 people, I don’t know! She’s awesome. Here is her website, we say big paws up! We can’t wait to see the pics!

We needed a rest, so Kim and John let us stay at our home base while they went to Tacofino food truck. Lots of people told them they have to go there….so they waited in line…..for an hour….for a taco and a burrito, oh and a Diablo cookie. You know what they say folks, it’s all about the experience 😉

They came back, and we all went to Chesterman Beach. This is a great spot…lots of surfers, tide pools and big rocks. Lots of photo opportunities.

Looks like we are in for some rain over the next couple of days….the adventure continues!

Freddy ❤️🐶🐶🐶❤️💕
