8/12/2007--Bamfield, British Columbia, Canada.The heart of Bamfield is a collection of old fisherman's homes and piers, with a broadwalk (seen here) that allows visitors to stroll along the waterfront. Bamfield, British Columbia, on Canada's Pacific Northwest coast on Vancouver Island, was a key station on the fragile line of telegraph cables that kept London talking to its farthest-flung imperial outposts around the world. ..Today, Bamfield remains as a cluster of charming wooden fishermen?s houses and a few bed and breakfasts for the adventurous traveler, around a bay formed by two tiny peninsulas of cliffs that protect the village from fierce winter storms. Originally settled by the Huu-ay-aht First Nation, sits quietly south of the the more popular and booming tourist towns of Tofino and Ucluelet.©2007 Stuart Isett. All rights reserved
