Tofino, BC  V0R 2Z0

(250) 726-5096

Tofino, British Columbia is located on the wild west coast of Vancouver Island -- a fabled, breathtaking location, with ancient rainforest, vast stretches of white sand and massive waves pounding in from the Pacific Ocean.

Tofino Guide is the only guidebook devoted solely to Tofino and the nearby Pacific Rim National Park Reserve. The guide shows you magnificent locations for hikes, picnics and beachcombing. You'll learn where you can walk a natural log bridge spanning a steep ravine.  Watch whales spouting, bears wandering the shorelines and bald eagles soaring overhead. Don' forget the world class surfing and sea kayaking, the extraordinary hiking trails, and of course the attractive village of Tofino, the heart of the Clayoquot Sound UNESCO Biosphere Reserve.

Stumble through the guide's pages to find world famous Long Beach and where to kick back with a hot chocolate in a beachside café. If you still have some energy, go to the surfing section to find out where to rent a wetsuit and surfboard to ride the cold Canadian waves!

Tofino Guide is available in print, on the web or as an iOS app.

Gibson International

TinaLCameron@aol.com
DRE #: 01248345

Gibson International is a full-service, Westside of L.A.-based real estate firm that was founded by industry veterans Scott Gibson and Patricia Heller for the sole purpose of offering an alternative to the tried and true. There is no shortage of real estate companies in Los Angeles. But how many of them truly put the needs of the client first? That is the question we asked ourselves; now we get to answer it everyday through our actions.

Tina L. Cameron quickly established herself as a force in the real estate industry upon becoming licensed in 1998, earning recognition for her incredible work ethic, her exquisite attention to detail, her extensive industry knowledge, and her client-centered approach. As renowned for her sales savvy as she is respected for her ethics and community involvement, Tina is not just one of the area's top agents, with sales achievements that have consistently earned her a place among the leading revenue producers; she is also the agent of choice of many of the entertainment industry and business world's biggest names.

"One of the factors that intrigued me about Gibson International is their approach to real estate," said Tina. "In a more corporate environment, you can get a bit stifled as it relates to marketing. I have so many ideas about how I want to market my listings, and this company is not just open to the possibilities, but embraces doing things in new and exciting ways. There are so many opportunities here to service my clients in ways I’ve always wanted to. I love Gibson's innovative outlook, the sophistication of their marketing, and the 'dream team' of agents they’ve attracted. It’s exciting to be a part of something so dynamic."

Tina Cameron attended Prescott College from 1972-73 in the RDP Program.

"Beautiful, organic fabrics woven with precision and artistry."

Sameheart Designs LogoWeaving began for me in the mountains of Prescott Arizona in 2001, in a landscape I consider totally sacred. I took one year of weaving courses and found weaving to be so natural and familiar to me. Soon enough, friends would borrow my scarves I had just woven and before I knew it, I was receiving orders. I loved the new medium of fiber and dove directly into the process of design. My focus is on maintaining a simple design but accentuating its power by the use of specific color and intentional placement.

After living deeply in Hawaiian Valleys and journeying into vast Arizona Wilderness areas, I was persuaded to live as simply as I could. I really miss the handmade way of life and so weaving and practical arts fulfill this part of me. To date, I have woven and sold over 300 pieces.

Presenting good quality, functional, well-designed, and reasonably priced dog gear for adventurous dogs and their humans!


As the owner of 4 active, large outdoorsy dogs, I was always on the lookout for good quality dog equipment that met the needs of both my dogs and myself. One day while hiking with a poorly designed dog pack (you know the kind, it always tips to one side or the other), I had one of those light bulb moments and Singing Dog Designs was born. After much testing our designs are about to come to fruition.
The name Singing Dog Designs came from my dogs’ propensity for “singing” along with me (maybe they don't like my singing :-).

Fueled by a love for creating and building, and longing to participate in an economy founded in local handcraft, we embarked. Bicycle touring is a large part of our lives. We delight in the notion of self-propelled travel, and have spent months over the years taking to the open road.
