ARBUTUS COVE WEEKEND

Wow, wow, wow! (Be forewarned.... picture-heavy post...)

The Arbutus Cove B & B was all we imagined, and more! Check it out...

That's the main house, the cabin we were in is just to the right. Here's our deck, and the view over Sooke basin from it...





And don't I look relaxed?



Our own personal hot tub ... and their private dock. . . (we didn't go by boat, but we technically could have!)




And then there was the Galloping Goose Trail -- there was an access about 100' from our cabin, so we walked a long way on Sunday... here's some highlights along the trail... (Sooke Basin on the left, tropical rain forest cliff on our right).





Two of the highlights on our walk were this waterfall...



And, if you look closely in the centre of this photo (or you can click on it to see the larger image) you'll see 4 or 5 of the most adorable little 'moss'-colored birds having a little natural bird-bath!



It was a blast, and we'll definitely go back... here's the sunset on our final evening...



ON THE NEEDLES: I have my first Finished Object of 2008 ... the interminable purple shawl! Pics later today!

What's it like sleeping on land when you are so used to being on the water?
