Tomato Bunnies (Tenon Vegetarian Cuisine restaurant)

Hey guys, apologies for not posting much lately, it’s a crazy busy time of the year.
Anyhow I’m back with some pics from vegetarian sushi place that we recently discovered – one of their cooks is totally an artist, he was making some awesome flowers or animals out of vegetables with every dish. Here’s the super cute bunnies he created out of cherry tomatoes, I couldn’t resist taking a pic:

Great idea for the future, will be decorating my plates this way too, as long as I can succeed with the art:)
The vegetarian sushi place is called Tenon Vegetarian Cuisine, if you visit Toronto, it’s an awesome place to go to.

Alberta and BC trip (part 7) – Tofino & Leaving the Vancouver Island

One of the classic touristic activities in Tofino is Whale Tours, and it is great! Usually the boat is tiny, for just about 8 people, it jumps on huge ocean waves like crazy, so beware if you tend to get sea sick 🙂 On these tours in Tofino there’s almost 100% chance to see a Whale, as, compared to Atlantic ocean, there are still many of these magnificent creatures remaining in the Pacifics. In fact, luckily, it applies to all animal species – on the Pacifics all animals and plants are much more abundant than on the poor depleted Atlantic ocean. So, right before leaving Tofino we finally did take one of the Whale Watching tours, and we did manage to see the Grey Whale, which I still cannot believe in 🙂 He did the fluke 3 times!!! But every time he would appear from a completely different direction, and the flukes were happening so fast, so …alas, no pictures of that incredible show. Plus it was so cold that my camera refused to work anyway, which on the other hand allowed me to focus on viewing the world not-through-the-lense, for a change. That all again made me appreciate the work of photographers that do get those pictures, it takes great patience and fast as lighting reaction.
On the rocks in the ocean there also were some sea lions, seals, as well as amazing orange-beak birds called puffins. The tour was really great, and I’d really recommend taking it on a small boat vs a larger vessel, as the tour is more personal that way and also it’s much more fun and scary to jump on crazy huge waves, gets you some adrenalin. Here’s our green Marine Adventures tour boats:
