The sun is shining and therefore makes me forget to take my coat this morning. Brrrr.

Fall is upon us, I realized when I had to for the first time scrape my windows. However I can not help but once again realize what a beautiful valley we live in as I drove to work today and admired the fall colours and beautiful foliage.  How fortunate we are.


Don’t just take my word for it, I invite you to come and see for yourself.


This Long weekend why not spend it with us. Winter rates are now in affect as well as Stamps café is hosting a lovely Turkey dinner for Sunday and Monday.

West Coast River Charters is on fire right now - Ask us how we can get you there.

This photo was from last winter but it's just letting people know about the winter steelheading happening at the end of next month.  Fishing is year round in Port Alberni.  I guess that's why they named us the Ultimate Fishing Town.
