Been by it last month have you spent time at Wasa, or up to Lazy Lake or Premier Lake. I am still trying to find Lussier Hot Springs and one day I will.
I love Lazy Lake OMG it doesn't get much prettier.

And talking about attractions all you PG and area folks can you tell me, is Barkerville still running? It was decades ago that I was there and would love to get back there again if it is still worth the visit.
And on your lovely Island there Pea, we were up to Parksville in March well Nanoose bay and I have to say for being dumb land locked Albertains, we found it most entertaining to watch a couple of seals come by every day to feed on the fish. Tough to leave there and come home.

hehehehe...well yes I know Schooner cove...but we called it bummer cove :P I worked at the hotel there for a few years....Man thats where I meet a group of newfies, they worked there also...can those people party!!!!

I camped once at premier lake....what a color that lake it Someone talked me into picking morell mushrooms, said we would make a fortune. All I got was black face and a half a bucket of morells hardly worth the workout I had to do.

Well you are in luck...the springs you seek...cosmos will tell you how to get there...she is from Windermere and knows that whole area...Blah! I miss those hot springs in the kootenays.

Wasa lake...oh yes I went there all the time, it was like a bathtub, the water was so warm. Geez I think I need to visit the kootenays again

Calgary, I am a native of Calgary, but all my life I have travlled around BC, I have family on the island.
Ah yes hot springs and snow all around, heavenly indeed. I need another holiday ahahahahaha
Well I could have some good convo with cosmos then eh hehehehe
As well with you as I have been a few places on the island too, one of my memorable treks took me up to the beautiful Campbell River. Pretty up there and to Miracle beach (I think that is what it was called) Sigh.
And speaking of which I am most disappionted I can get out there for the weekend of the 24th to see the "tall ships" that would be kick ***. Sigh.

Geez louise Your well informed, you should be living in BC. So then you must have hit the jazz festival they have in Victoria every year.
Yes Campbell River is a awesome place, my favorite island is just across the bay from campbell river, Quadra Island. Well next time you come to the island you will have to have a starbucks with the rest of the whatthehell gang from victoria that visits this board...Can you jest? :P its the only necessary requirement. :P

Ah I wish I hit the festival, the ex room mate goes all the time kept promising to invite me along. (long since punted him so that is a bust)
My aunt has land on Cortez, I have yet to get there boo hoo. I aspire to retire on the island. I go there to get away from here. Fond memories from childhood of my grandparents and cousins out there.
Fell in love with the Sooke Pot Holes and area OMG so beautiful. My family resides just around the Sidney Area, and Pat Bay, Deep Cove areas.
Ok next escape out your way and I am calling on ya. May leave cowtown during the stampede to escape 10 days of madness ahahahahahaha
