Arbutus Bluff


Exactly four years ago we spent our first night on Gabriola and this was the view from our lodging at Arbutus Bluff B&B, looking west across the Pylades Channel towards Vancouver Island. It was New Years Eve '04 and Mrs. Snapper and I were on our honeymoon. We couldn't have picked a nicer spot and if you ever find yourself heading to Gabe, we highly recommend giving Bill and Liz a buzz. They'll take good care of you and needless to say, the scenery is a bit of all right.

Certainly looks like a romantic spot.

This is gorgeous! Perhaps someday if I ever find someone romantic enough to spend time there, I'll go. LOL Thanks for sharing your picture and your story.

An awe-inspiring shot. The b&b looks wonderful, too. We will file it away for when we come out to see the arbutus trees in person.

Wishing you a very Happy New Year (and eventually perhaps a spot of bare earth or grass to gaze upon)!

(I thought I left a similar comment before, but it seems to have vaporised. Pardon me if I'm double-posting.)
