17. Ucluelet Tofino

Here you can find pictures from Tofino/Ucluelet. Tofino is a city located in the north-west coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. We spent there 3 nights; on the 2nd day we took a bear-watching tour, where we saw a black bear, sea lions, star fish and some nice birds and then we went to the Botanical Gardens. On the 3rd day we went for a 1 km hike to Schooner cove to see the low tide, then we went to see the light house in Ucluelet and then we went to the Ucluelet aquarium, where the kids had lots of fun touching everything.

14. McChord Air Force Base Air Show

This is the first air show we went that was in an actual AFB. The kids got to climb into some fighter planes and it was great overall. Note about the photos. I made sure the apeture will be at least f/8 to keep all planes in focus when they are in focus and made sure the speed will be at least 1/500 for fighter planes and around 1/250 to blur thee propellers by playing with the ISO setting. In both cases I also set the light metering system to average mode.
