Troygan wed in Tofino

Team Mia went up to Tofino to attend Troy & Megan's wedding (the event some have deemed ''impossible'')

Tofino is located on the west side of Vancouver Island (which is the size of Maryland). To get there from Seattle you drive 2 1/2 hours to Vancouver, take an 2 hour ferry to Nanaimo, then it's a 3 hours drive. We hooked up w/t Todd & Jamie in Bellingham and they did most of the driving.

Tofino is a beautiful town that's very Maine-like, but decidely Canada. Laid back, lots of chowder houses, well known for their sea kayaks and ton of winter surfers (see photo of a surfer going into the water amid a backdrop of snow). Yeah. OK.

The wedding itself was just fabulous. The group took over an entire lodge (see view from our room) and there were parties around the clock. Last time we saw Jen she was downing tequila shots at 3am and we never did see her the next day. Troy & Megan somehow survived all this and are currently traveling in New Zealand.

Would you be interested in your photos and possibly you could put together a short story (500 words or less) about your Tofino experience?, a Tofino, Ucluelet and Port Alberni, regional, daily, news site for coasters is putting together a section that your work could be included in.
Please email if you are interested in helping us out!
Thank you much and I enjoyed visiting your blog!
