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!!

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.
... 2 seals on a rock . Later Ian said he wanted to start the mowing so Cynthia and I cooked dinner and drank wine and Chris built a lovely big fire to warm the house up (as it was all shut up for winter) We sat chatting as the sun set just enjoying this lovely place. Chris has repainted some of the inside since I was here last and it looks great. Ian has a large splinter in one finger which I can't get out! ...
I'm sitting here in my home office on a dreary winter day, dreaming of my planned trip to the UK in May and June 2010. I plan to visit some cousins (those I have met before and some new ones I hope), and do some primary family history research.
My planned itinerary includes Horley (to visit ...
Where to start? I have done lots and lots since I last blogged, the length of time cause in part by lack of chance to get on the internet and in part because of ridiculous $8 per hour fees for getting on the internet. Anyway, here I am, sat in a hostel in Victoria on Vancouver Island on a very rainy day. I last blogged on Saturday, so I'll start from the sunday, as this seems the best place to begin my tale. We woke up early to catch ...
