I was recently extremely fortunate to be able to spend 3 nights at the world class Wickaninnish Inn located in Tofino BC. My wife’s and my first trip out of town together was to this Relais & Chaeteaux independently owned and operated resort. So, four years later we returned for an anniversary celebration.
The resort is nestled into a wild, seaside landscape on the wonderful Chesterman Beach, and all rooms have water views. The waves are absolutely mesmerizing. I could literally watch them for hours. With a glass of champagne in hand, sitting in an armchair or double soaker tub situated in an expansive window, I could watch the waves come rolling in indefinitely.
At breakfast one morning in the onsite restaurant on the pointe I decided to film the waves from my table by the window so I wouldn’t miss any of the brilliance. I discreetly set my iPhone on the windowsill and hit record. Atttached is some of the footage set to one of my favourite songs – Monkeys Uptown by Iron & Wine. I’m sure it’s not as good as the real thing but I hope you find it mesmerizing nonetheless.
