Long Beach Lodge Resort and Cox Bay

September 27th, 2010 @ 2:55pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

After leaving The Wickaninnish Inn at Chesterman Beach in Tofino, we made our way to Long Beach Lodge Resort, located along Cox Bay.

The Road to Tofino

September 24th, 2010 @ 9:55am by Rebecca Bollwitt

This morning we woke up in one of the most beautiful places in the world.

Yesterday the narrow, winding road that is Highway 4 led us down […]

Tourist in Your Hometown Contest

August 30th, 2010 @ 10:35am by Rebecca Bollwitt

Being born and raised in Surrey we rarely came to downtown Vancouver to experience local attractions. Our usual escape route was out through the Valley and along the highways and biways of our grand Province. However, when our family did make trips to the big city (or I had a field trip with school) there […]
