Stellar May Long Weekend

Painter's Lodge - May 19, 2009

What a wonderful May Long Weekend we had here at Painter’s Lodge. The sun was shinning and the fish were biting.

We are currently having our annual Spring Fling Derby, every Chinook that are caught are entered into the derby. We have some great prizes. The first prize being a trip for two to the Charlotte Princess, the second prize is a three day getaway to Painters Lodge, and third prize is a three day fishing package to the Canadian Princess in Ucluelet.

As of right now Charles Tolgyessy is the leader in the derby with a 25 pound Chinook. Visit us and try to out fish him!

This weekend was extra special for me as my dad and his friend came here all the way from Quebec. I gave them the full Oak Bay experience. First we went off to the Canadian Princess in Ucluelet. They hooked us up with a great room, we then we had a delicious dinner at the Wickaninnish Restaurant.

When we got back to Painter's they went fishing, and then on the Wildlife Tour, which was a huge success. We saw everything, Dahl porpoises, seals, eagles, Stellar sea lions, harbour porpoises and best of all we saw a black bear! Just when we though it was going to run away, he plopped his bum down and sat and watched us.

To finish off our fun filled, exciting day, we had drinks at the Tyee Pub while relaxing and enjoying the beautiful view. All in all they had a wonderful time and they can’t wait to come back next year.

That’s all for today. Thanks for checkin’ in. Hope your have a wonderful day.
