Savary Island

This past weekend Shayne and myself vacationed on Savary Island. We had a wedding to attend there and saw this as the right opportunity to take a break from life. It’s a beautiful island that is a drive, 2 ferries and a water taxi away from Pemberton. It’s WELL WORTH the journey, trust me. We rented a cabin for 3 nights and spent 1 night in Powell River. Sunshine. White sand beaches. Friends. Nature. Love. Will I be going back? YES.

REO Rafting

When I think “stagette” I think: strippers, tequila and a whole-lotta-sin but my perception of the brides one last hurrah changed last weekend. 14 Pemberton, Whistler and Vancouver ladies gathered for 2 nights at REO Rafting to celebrate our friends stagette! Wow, was that a fun trip!

Everyone left their men and children at home and spent their weekend as adult summer camp. This place is amazing! Their food was better then summer camp: wraps, BBQ, bacon and much more. We brought our own booze and snacks which we were allowed to bring with us to meals and the bonfire.

Speaking of bonfire, they have 2 large pits with a lot of seating around them! If you feel like having a hot tub, you can because they have one of those too!

I can’t tell you about the rafting because myself and 3 others didn’t go. No, I’m not a puss…..my physio told me to go because of my rib injury. We spent the morning chilling in the sun while everyone else had a blast on the natlahatch river. I can tell you that it was very relaxing to relax in the sunshine, beside the river. I even became friends with a butterfly named Igor.

We slept in tent cabins and there was electricity, flush toilets and showers. There was even coffee (eventually). This place is great for ANY event like a stag, stagette, team building, work retreat, couples weekend, birthday getaway and ANYTHING else. The drive from Pemberton was only 3.5 hours and it was SO BEAUTIFUL! The staff were friendly, fun, amazing and from what I hear troopers at playing flip cup. So, should you go? YES!
