Good Morning From Harrison

October 21st, 2010 @ 10:15am by Rebecca Bollwitt

Last night I enjoyed great company, fabulous music, and hazelnut-crusted halibut in the Harrison Hot Springs Resort’s legendary Copper Room. The preserved dining experience from the heyday of the supper club is complimented by an illuminated dance floor brought to life by the sounds of the Jones Boys. From Sinatra to Buble, women in their […]

Fetch Restaurant at Black Rock Resort

September 28th, 2010 @ 1:05pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

While we were on Vancouver Island this past weekend we received an invitation to dine at Black Rock Resort. Located in Ucluelet, it was about 40 minutes away from where we were in Tofino and definitely worth the trip. The main dining room at Black Rock is called Fetch, and it features a fresh menu […]

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. While our surf lesson (from their in-house team) was canceled due to the extremley stormy seas, we relaxed in the Great Room and in the hot tub out behind our cottage. The […]

Named the Best Resort/Hotel on Vancouver Island in the Georgia Straight’s Best of Vancouver 2010, The Wickaninnish Inn has been winning awards for years from prestigious travel publications and was named the “Most Excellent Romantic Hideaway of 2010″ by Condé Nast. Aside from the accolades and almost everyone I know wanting to visit, I sensed […]

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. I’ve driven most freeways, motorways and scenic byways of this province, from Spuzzum to Bella Coola, and I can now add the Pacific Rim Highway to the list. Yesterday the narrow, winding road that is Highway 4 led us down […]

Britannia Mine Museum

September 13th, 2010 @ 1:00pm by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Britannia Mine Museum is re-launching next weekend after a name change (from the BC Mining Museum), refreshed logo, and updated visitor experience on the grounds of the old Britannia Mine, about 10km south of Squamish. John and I were invited up for the day to check out the grounds, the new buildings, and go […]

Howe Sound Inn & Brewing Company

This weekend John and I were guests of the inn at Howe Sound Brewing. It’s one of BC’s most awarded and decorated microbreweries and is tucked away at the end of Cleveland Street in Squamish. View Larger Map Upon arrival we settled into our room, which is one of 20 at the inn, and went […]

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 […]
