Oh Susanna, Won't You Cry for Tofino

Last night at dinner, Daughter P alluded to the fact I was working 24-7 at the moment. Well, maybe not quite 24-7, but 20-7 perhaps. Not getting a lot of sleep and glued to my computer, but hopefully it will all be worth it in the end. The end being November 1 although that is subject to a major meltdown (on my part). (Did I tell you my computer was stolen...)

Anyhow, at the risk of losing any readers I might have, I'll try to post a few Tofino-related links for the time being. And here's a cool one. CBC has a contest going on Great Canadian Song Quest, I guess they want to replace the Great Canadian Railway Trilogy or Northwest Passage perhaps! Oh Susanna has been chosen to write a song about Tofino. Now that's kind of cool. Here's another link to the same story. (There already is a song written about Tofino, if you recall. I'm sure there are others, too. If so, let me know; send me a link!)

And, of course, the Coldwater Classic is underway and local surfers are making good!

And in the Tofino Loves its Controversy category, things are heating up over these plans for Catface Mountain. First there was this, and that got the troops rallying. I know there were several letters of protest in last week's paper but I can't seem to find them on-line. I'll search a bit more when I have a moment. (Or please send me links!)

There's a history of protest in these parts and if that's news to you, head on over here. (And sometimes, you just have to laugh a little, before you begin to cry.)

And are you looking for a sweet demure little cabin of your own in Tofino? Then look no further.
