We were so happy with this Motel! We picked up our stay through Island Daily Deals and it included 2 nights stay with a $25 pub credit. The room was very clean with an amazing view! The staff were incredibly friendly and the Motel pub had really good food. I would go again in a heartbeat!

... for a few days and had such a great time! We went on a boat ride (in the ocean and encountered 3-5 foot waves, gulp!) and checked out some hot springs, which was fun.
We also saw a bald eagle our first day there! And we got to see a ton of sea lions, sea otters, and sea creatures galore! No whales, but ah well, we need a reason to go back. ;)
... and the second was a true-life doco about the Monique butterflies. It was about their three-year and generation life cycle and how they flew to the Mexican Mountains from many places in the USA. They bred and dropped their eggs on the route back to the USA and how in turn that part of the Mexican Mountain Range was made a World Wildlife Heritage Park.
We then went through the Museum and it was very interesting. The main displays in the museum dealt with Scott / ...
