While in Sooke I made a stop at Whiffin Spit park.

Joe looking across Juan de Fuca strait toward the Olympic mountains in Washington state.

Looking west out the strait.

Leaving Sooke we followed the coast out to Jordan River, a popular spot for paddle boarders and surfers. The surf was pretty anemic on this day.

On to Port Renfrew.

The Victoria - Port Renfrew - Lake Cowichan loop is one of the most popular rides on the Island. It's a great day ride with lots of twisties, good pavement for the most part and very little traffic. I'd already made that loop 4 times this year so I decided rather than take the paved road to Lake Cowichan I'd try the gravel logging roads but first I stopped in Port Renfrew for a snack. My favourite stop is Tomi's bistro and, with my ADVILF buddies in mind, I ordered the pie Rather than a slice it was an entire mini-pie! I wish I'd taken a picture of it - it was truly magnificent! If you're in Renfrew I recommend you stop at Tomi's and have the pie but take someone with you to share it

Port Renfrew harbour.

Leaving Port Renfrew - the end of the pavement for a couple of days
