A cold Ucluelet run and cold beer too!

We decided to spend a couple of days in Ucluelet before Christmas to relax a bit as I am working through the holidays.  We stayed at Water’s Edge Resort and the temperatures hovered around minus 1 C with a fresh sprinkling of snow which didn’t melt during the day so the Wild Pacific Trail was white  and crunchy.  Since the wind shifted to blow out of the West the skies opened up and the sun shone in, a real mid-December treat!

We had run this trail earlier in the year and had thought to come back in the winter. The trail goes behind the Black Rock Resort so we thought it would be a good place to stop for lunch.

After we ran the South portion of the trail, we pulled on nice clothes and ran in to the Blackrock for a yummy lunch and beer!

I liked the Phillips Brewing Co from Victoria ‘Dr. Funk’.  Jackie liked ‘Slipstream cream Ale’.

Beer!

After lunch we decided to walk the North trail.  We could see a big black cloud dumping rain and heading this way.

We headed out on the trail and tried to time the oncoming darkness and the oncoming rain.

We were heading back and the sleeting rain started as it got dark.  Another awesome day out!
