West Coast Whale Fest

I think I have just survived one of the busiest work week's of my life. Today it looking a bit crazy too, but then we're taking off on a little break. Wow, do I need it. We always seem to be away for this big event — the annual Pacific Rim Whale Festival — and this year is no different. We will be getting home a bit early though, as I have to do a history walk on Saturday (meet at St. Columba's Church at 10) and also sit on a panel that afternoon ("25 Years of Sea Change). Both events are listed here.

Sadly, there are also some literary events I'm going to be missing as well. On Saturday morning, Gurjinder Basran, author of Everything Was Good-bye,will be at Tofino Sea Kayaking from 9 to 10:30 am.


On Saturday night, Grant Lawrence will be reading from Adventures in Solitude. His wife, musician Jill Barber, will also perform during the evening. The event is at the Clayoquot Community Theatre.


  1. Having seen Jill Barber at the legion a few years back, can safetly say she is amazing and should not be missed!
