Soren – Exploring the West Coast

Vancouver Island is a place to visit for people of all ages. Join Soren as he tells us about some of his amazing adventures right here on Vancouver Island!

IMG_6501In the summer my family went for a long, windy car ride to BIG beaches on the west coast!  We saw lots of things on the way, BIG trees, birds, cows, lakes, nice people, more trees and then the OCEAN.  When we got out of the car I headed straight for the water.  Waves crashing, big waves, little waves and sand everywhere. We climbed on rocks, we dug big holes, and found funny little animals scurrying across the sand.  I love the sand in my toes, no shoes here just soft sand and LOTS of space to run. I didn’t want to go but mommy said I had to have a nap. I’m a big boy now so I don’t think I need I naps, but mommy disagrees.IMG_6612  I would like to live at the beach, I think that would be a good idea.

The next day we went on walks.  I can walk really far, daddy only had to carry me a couple of times to keep up with mommy and baby.   Everywhere we go there’s new things to see and touch.  My favourite was the star animals – I squealed the first time I touched them but then I thought it was fun. It would be nice to take them home to see our cats, but we’re not allowed to.  They seem to like living by the ocean, plus they would miss their ocean-friends. IMG_6534We also went to Ucluelet Aquarium.  I’ve never seen so many fun creatures in my life!!  The best was the crabs, part because my favourite colour is orange but mostly because of their big, pinchy claws!  And the sea enemies (anemones) were fun too. When I poked them they grabbed my finger – but not in a scary way, in a gentle, slow way – why are they called enemies when they’re so nice?  They were cute.  I wonder if they could see me because I didn’t see their findviagrapills eyes, but I really liked them.

Until next time!..IMG_6489
