A superb stay in an outstanding location - topped by a fantastic day with Dieter looking for - and finding the local wildflife, bald eagles, turkey vultures, porpoise, seals, sea lions and the highlight 2 orca killer whales. All in the most stunning scenery. Its been wonderful to stay here for four nights on our road trip around the west coasts of Canada and America - celebrating our silver wedding anniversary. We’ve also enjoyed the chance to sit and watch the birds - the birding scope is a great idea. Thanks for a wonderful stay in a fabulous place - we hope to return.
