Tofino in June 2011

by Adam Buskard, Tofino

the letter 'S'Summer is here! Summer is here! Summer is here!

I may be speaking too soon but I think it’s safe to strip off the rain gear and break out the flip flops and shorts.
There’s lots going on this month to enjoy and get involved with.

Have fun!
You deserve it Tofino!
