A Day of Storm Watching on The Wild West Coast
Wake to The Exciting Sounds of Nature
Listen to the southeast winds singing in the trees as the crashing waves join in harmony. These sounds of nature awaken you with the promise of a great storm. Your senses are stimulated. It is the excitement you feel as your eyes and ears feast on the sights and sounds that stimulate your senses. Be prepared to get engaged with one of nature’s best events; the storm.
Linger With Morning Coffee or Tea in Bed or By The Fire
Linger awhile…stay another moment longer…feel the contrast of the moment. You ...inside… all warm and cozy in your bed…while outside the cold winds are calling to you to get up, come out and play. But first you have to take the time to enjoy your first cup of fresh brewed coffee or tea while you sit by the fire, wrapped in your cozy robe. You gaze out upon the ocean, front row and center, as you watch the waves crash on the reef and roll to shore. The gulls and eagles are dancing in the wind, circling above. They too are calling you to come out and play.
Enjoy a Delicious Breakfast, Storm Watch Indoors or Brave The Elements
After a delicious hearty breakfast served in the privacy of your cozy suite you can spend the rest of your day watching the storm from your comfy chair or get outside and brave the elements. We provide you with complimentary rain gear. Don’t forget to bring your camera along. Walk the Wild Pacific Trail. Visit the Amphitrite Point light-house by hiking the trail that winds along the cliff top affording spectacular views of the wild Pacific ocean, Barkley Sound and the Broken Group Islands.
Imagine the Possibilities! Be Inspired!
Feel the power as the crashing waves shake the earth beneath your feet. How invigorating the feeling is after a morning of storm watching. Come home to rest a bit and warm up by the fire with a cup of hot chocolate. Now it’s definitely lunchtime, your stomach is growling. Satisfy your appetite at one of our delightful local restaurants. There is something about the salt air and all that excitement that makes you hungrier. Perhaps visit an art gallery after lunch, a great way to digest your food. The west coast art scene is rich, vibrant, and reflects the inspirations of this wild and beautiful place.
Top Up With Lunch, Explore Galleries, Hikes, Beaches, & Return to The Fire
So now you have satisfied your hunger, you found a special treasure at a local art gallery and now you want to come home and take a nap, sit and read or write a book by the fire, or, you can continue to explore more of the west coast rocky shoreline and the miles of sandy beaches in the Pacific Rim National Park.
Go Beachcombing For Treasure, Get Wowed By Waves Crashing on Rocks
Beachcombing is an adventure in itself. You never know what you will find on the beach. As the sands shift during a storm, they reveal various shells and the secret of the sand dollar. The currents and tides bring in driftwood and occasionally a glass float from Japan. The turbulent waves create interesting patterns in the sand. The beaches are strewn with the giant bull kelp. Sometimes whole kelp plants, roots and all, are torn away from their rocky hold and strewn about the shore. Please remember to keep well back from the ocean during mid-storm, the sea is at its most powerful and its waves can rush quickly towards the shore.
Dine in a World-Class Restaurant or Relax By Your Fire With a Gourmet Pizza
And now it is getting dark and there is a familiar rumbling going on inside… yes it is time to eat… again. Now comes another adventure. Wining and candle light dining is another great experience with our world class restaurants. Remember to call ahead to reserve. Or if you are too tired to go anywhere and just want to relax by the fire then ‘order in’ a delicious pizza.
Oceanfront Hot Tub Under The Stars or Wine and Candle Light in Your Soaker Tub
After dinner, relax and enjoy a hot tub under the stars or if it is too stormy outside, enjoy the candle light and wine as you soak your cares away in the soaker tub inside. Replay the events of the day or finish reading or writing that best selling novel, or how about an evening at the movies in your cozy suite complete with popcorn!
