Tofino in December 2008
by Adam Buskard, Tofino
This time last year we had already been battered by the full brunt of winter's worst and had the lights flicker and dim on us many times. We are getting off a little easier so far this year, I guess maybe winter already had a good go at us in August...
Thanks for an amazing year Tofino, we were more than happy to be part of it. We'd like to wish you all a great holiday season and a very happy New Year. Thanks to all who were part of the magazine's success in 2008 and we're excited to do it all over again. See you in the New Year!
