An amazing place where their commitment to local, sustainable produce and high quality service makes the stay so fantastic.
The rooms are fun - Murphy beds mean that there's more space. But, you hardly need it, considering the lounge chairs by the ocean (or when it's cold, like it is now, you can go in the spa lounge) or the hot tub, steam caves, outdoor heated pool, or more are on offer. The spa is fantastic - amazing hydrotherapy (a MUST!!) with divine massages and services available for reservation.
The food is one of the greatest highlights. Local seafood, cheese, meats, bread...you name it, they have it. I definitely recommend that you book - the restaurant is a favourite with locals and tourists alike, and you may be waiting if you don't have a reservation. But, you MUST eat here...don't cheap out and go to McDonalds in Courtenay!!
Bring some good books and unwind...this place is ideal for getting away without it breaking the bank...and trust me, you'll feel a whole lot happier and relaxed than if you take a stressful flight for 12 hours somewhere else!!

... as ''oe-koe-leh-leh'' and not ''joe-koe-leh-leh''. After that, we watched different types of gypsy dancers taking us around India, eastern Europe, Turkey, Egypt and Iran. I couldn't really follow what was going on and it was a little weird (and sometimes awful music, but hey, we have awful carnavals music). Then we waited for Uminaro Taiko, a bunch of Japanese taiko drummers from Victoria. They were pretty energetic and it ...
... to Costco wholesale, which is like the Sligro, but then 100 times bigger! That was one hell of an experience (in a positive way)! We bought so much, we should have that in Holland.
+ We made our own oliebollen, yummy.
- It took some time to finish them.
+ The girls are funny.
+ Our nails were painted by the girls.
+ I bought 2 articles of clothing for only 10 bucks! Cheap cheap cheap.
... chatting about a million things (Yvette and I, not Maddy and I) . I have this beautiful room all for myself, that changes me from the 6-bed dorm in Vancouver ;-)
And, because we talked about Maddy's diabetes, Yvette let me give Maddy an insulin injection, so, I learned something new! That was really so nice of her!
My first Couch Surfing experience as a surfer, and I love it!
Tonight, just relaxing!
... he loved it there, he mentioned a couple of places we should visit as well. He also said we should take a drive up to the forbidden plateau in the morning, he said it is really beautiful and lots of wildlife. So that's the morning sorted, in the afternoon we are heading to Campbell river, which will be our most northerly destination on Vancouver island.
... some of the best shots here.
Later today I'll be back with all my coworkers again at a pig roast on Air Force Beach, where I'll be given a memorial 442 Squadron coffee mug as a going away present. There is sadness in leaving this fun loving group of coworkers behind. Most of them have a great sense of humor, a trait that is required when you're trying to keep 40 ...
