Now that things are little bit more settled with the kids back to school, I can finally sit down and post some of our anniversary pics. As mentioned before, this was a vacation to reconnect and do absolutely nothing; and that is exactly what we did. I can honestly say that I have never been more relaxed in my life (as I'm posting this, I have Avery and a friend of hers in this room, bugging the hell out of me to get them some craft supplies)...so much for the relaxation! We really need to do this every year! Just to get away from the daily demands and needs of the kids and work and what has to be done the next day and the next and the next.......
Our tenthouse suite, is the one pictured here #59..closest to the ocean and one of the most private as we were veered off the main boardwalk, so no-one had to walk by ours to get to another one.
To get to our tent, we started through here, and continued along the boardwalk until we arrived.
This was the inside of our tent: every view overlooked the ocean. Every night we fell asleep to the waves crashing against the rocks and every morning we awoke to extreme peacefulness.
This was our view from the balcony. We spent most of our time here, reading, sunbathing, drinking our coffee and eating our breakfast. One afternoon we ventured into Pender Harbour for lunch and tried our hand at kayaking for an hour, but other than that we stayed here. We barely got out of our robes...the most comfortable, soft robes in the whole world. You can check them out on-line at warm buddy company.
Dale surprised me one evening with a delivery of champagne, homemade truffles and chocolate covered strawberries
we also enjoyed a couples massage in this outdoor tent overlooking the ocean:
and then we had our 7 course dinner..not the typical dinner you would think of...we did alot of taste experimenting. Thankgoodness, for the 8 glasses of wine that was supplied with each course..some of them were a little hard to stomach! Needless to say, I was craving a nice big juicy steak by the time we got back to Vancouver!
Would definately highly recommend this resort to anyone looking for a special getaway, but you have to stay in the tenthouse suites...they are what makes this trip extremely romantic and special!
