Marks of true friendship

by Linda Wegner on 01/29/18



Of all the places we've lived in our nearly 50 years of marriage, I can think of only one neighbour who didn't become a friend.

The Powell River Blog
Over the past number of months I made the decision to formally retire from my business activities; having said that, I will retain my company name Words of Worth and will continue writing for a select number of rural weeklies and a monthly agricultural magazine. A weekly inspirational article appearing on this page is also emailed to a number of readers. To be added to this email list, contact me at linda@wordsofworth.ca

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. Yes, our travel options are expensive and somewhat restrictive, but it’s because of that isolation that we have avoided the hectic pace of city life.

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.








 Sincerely,
Linda Wegner
