The September issue of En Route Magazine features 2 articles profiling Ucluelet, and a photo by Mark Penney.
One day in Ukee and we’re starting to think artistic talent blows in from the sea. Just walk down to Whiskey Landing – the building itself is a work of art – where the Cedar House Gallery shows off Vancouver Island First Nations art and crafts, including whalebone sculptures by Patrick Amos. At the neighbouring Mark Penney Gallery, we marvel at Metis artist Terry Jackson’s delicate slip-cast porcelain vessels depicting whales, coyotes and eagles. “~ Marine Land – EnRoute Magazine
The Wild Pacific Trail is way more docile than the name suggests. Hugging the black rocks that rise along the craggy shore, this path is divvied up into three sections, allowing you take in the crashing waves and the forest in five minutes or 50. The surface is level enough that you can take a wheelchair or baby stroller for a spin here. And if hunger strikes during your mid-morning walk, just grab a table at Fetch at Black Rock Oceanfront Resort; the trail passes right by the restaurant’s patio. There are also benches placed along the route so you can sit down and admire the sunset, or just take a breather. And you may need it – the views are breathtaking.”~ Happy Trails – EnRoute Magazine
