Kwisitis Wickanninish Beach – Pacific Rim National Park

All photos taken on October 11, 2022.

After the short Florencia Bay walk, we were ready for more Pacific coast scenery. We drove to Kwisitis Visitor Centre (temporarily closed) parking area. It offered access to Wickanninish Beach and a couple of different hikes.

Not much to tell. After working for 3 companies over 43+ years (38 years 7 months with my last company), I finally got that promotion I had waited my entire career for……retirement. I have been exploring this new career for the past 7+ years and while it is not always exciting, the chance to do what I want for myself and my family instead of what my company wants has been very fulfilling. Early on, there was a long list of projects in my “to-do” hopper and I attacked these projects with a vengeance for the first 9 months of retirement. Eventually, my brain told me that this was not what retirement was about, so it took me another 5 months before my industriousness again took over and I attacked another line of projects, this time somewhat shorter and less complicated, as well as many new projects related to the family weddings in 2016. After going hard for 6 weeks and 3 weddings, my body was telling me to relax, then the flu bug hit and as soon as that was done with me, my sciatic acted up. No rest for the wicked. In 2020 and 2021, the Covid 19 pandemic changed the whole retirement gig. I was lucky to not be still working, for sure. I enjoy photography, gardening, working with my hands, walking, cycling, skiing, travelling, reading and creating special photo and video productions obtained in my first pastime. I may never become wealthy in any of these pursuits, but I already feel I am rich in life experiences far beyond any expectation.

  1. Given that you have unspoiled temperate rainforests and kilometres of long sandy beaches, could this be the most beautiful coastal scenery in the world, especially on a sunny day? I haven’t visited Vancouver Island yet, but I have always been fascinated by the beauty of the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve and the Nuu-chah-nulth First Nations. Thanks for sharing and have a good day 🙂 Aiva xx

    1. It is beautiful indeed and possibly more so because it is a long drive from major population centers. Long may it last. Once Lilly is bigger your family needs to visit Long Beach. Imagine the memories of little feet running down the sandy beach. Enjoy your weekend Aiva. Allan
