Ocean Village

I was going through my photo library and realized 2011 was a good travel year – Maui in March, Tofino, BC in June, and camping at Emma Lake, SK in August.  It’s not likely that sequence will be repeated this year, but I would love to go back to Tofino and Ocean Village Resort at some point.  It’s not one of the expensive, fancy resorts in the area, but it’s comfy, cozy, has some character and it’s right on Mackenzie Beach.

This strawberry rhubarb fruit wine from Sleeping Giant Winery near Summerland, BC is great for a summer wine. For a bit of fizziness, add club soda. Yum.

Picture was taken at Ocean Village Resort just outside Tofino, BC. Accommodations are a bit rustic, but I would go back in a heartbeat.  The resort is located at Mackenzie Beach, a few kilometres from Tofino.  The big, expensive resorts like Wickaninnish Inn and Long Beach Lodge Resort are just down the road, but Ocean Village is a gem.
