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!!

We did some hugging and took our luggage. We took the 'seaside route' so Marloes and I could enjoy the scenery and views from the ocean. We stopped a few times, including to see some sea lions lying on each others' bums and making funny noises. It was a ...
... with this dark weather and the fog hanging over the water. We walked along the water, I remembered my mother who there would have spent here nose close to the ground to find nice pebbles (rollers? des galets in french)!
And now, back home, I am drinking a good cup of tea, and I just tried for the first time Egg Nog!

... fish are biting HARD!... I keep fishing and getting bites, but without barbs, am not able to keep anything on, no matter b/c they are little guys... I talk to this guy, and he mentions the BASS in the lake... I almost squeal!! BASS??? There's BASS here!!! Im BASS fishing!! No wonder they are hitting hard, the water is pee warm, and they are taking spinners!! YYYYEEEAAAAHHH!!! A pleasent afternoon catching the little fighters. I had a lunker on, but ...
... how much water you will be gaining or losing. We managed not to run out of water, go aground or hit rock, so we are pretty proud of that fact. In Teakernarm, we pulled into this beautiful bay and anchored with a stern too line. Ian and George took the dingy ashore and went for a hike up to a lake. Mike and I stayed with the boat; Mike was in a lot of pain from his swimming accident and I had burnt the tops of my feet ...
