Here, take these

by Linda Wegner on 11/14/18

Halloween took place several weeks ago and though I freely admit that it's not one of my favourite nights of the year, I always make sure we have goodies to hand out and I wear a big smile along with my regular duds to welcome visitors. And visitors we have! Read more...

Pausing to remember

by Linda Wegner on 11/06/18

This month our country commemorates the 100th anniversary of the end of World War One. I wasn't around for that but around the world, millions of people who hoped and longed for a war-free world, celebrated.

A Message from Linda Wegner
Situated on the west coast of British Columbia, Powell River is a geographically isolated community with access to Vancouver Island or the Lower Mainland, including Vancouver, only by plane or boat.

Our scenery is spectacular and the opportunities for outdoors activities, abundant. Take a look and avoid being jealous, if you can. The photos above are courtesy of Sean Percy, outdoor enthusiast and scuba diver.

Thank you to you all for your love and support.
