Tofino View from Dock

The first time I visited Tofino was the summer after my first year of university when I had some time between the end of my classes and the start of exams.

Prior to my visit, I heard from so many people about the amazing food and the diversity of cuisines in San Francisco and I was really excited to check it all out for myself. In three days, my friend and I managed to pack in a lot of food. We hit up a lot of popular places, and we were fortunate enough to not have any long line-ups.
