Thanks for a lovely holiday

We had a wonderful 5 day stay at the Birds of a Feather. We enjoyed all that this area had to offer, from the beautiful sunrise, the abundant wildlife and amazing scenery, the lazy sunsets. The advice that Dieter gave us was invaluable. Had we not taken this advice we would have missed a most exciting whale watching trip. We were lucky enough to encounter a super pod. Everywhere you looked, you saw whales performing all sorts of acrobatics. It was perfect. The gardens at Hatley Castle also provided us with photo opportunities. We saw peacock families as well as hummingbirds. Well worth a visit. Thanks for a lovely holiday.
