It’s not hard to get excited about spending a summer working at Eagle Nook when you get to see what a magical place it is. A few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to go up there for the first time and we were lucky enough to have the weather cooperate for us and have a couple gorgeous days. After the short drive to Port Alberni, we arrived at the marina where the sun was shining down on us. Standing on the edge of the dock at China Creek, looking out onto the open ocean, I couldn’t wait to get out there.
Once we got out on the water and started the ride to the resort, the beauty of our surroundings took my breath away. With eagles soaring over head and the occasional seal and otter making an appearance, it made the ride even more magical. Even though I grew up on the island, I sometimes forget, just how beautiful it is and wonder what it must be like for someone coming here for the first time.
Pulling up to the resort, it wasn’t hard to see what made it a destination for guests year after year. The beautiful landscape and pristine waters, full of salmon and halibut ready to be fished, makes you feel relaxed and at home. With not another building in sight and the calmness up there creates the perfect backdrop for an ideal escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. With the picturesque views from the dining room, patios and beautiful ocean views from each room, I couldn’t help but fall in love with the place, which was fitting considering it was Valentine’s Day.
Living on the West Coast, we have some advantages, like being able to go out Salmon fishing in February. So of course, when we had the opportunity to go out, we took full advantage. People always ask when the best time to come is, and the reality is, anytime is good. Even in the middle of February, we managed to reel in a beautiful twelve pound winter spring salmon.
With some of August already being sold out, it’s shaping up to be a busy season!! So if you’re thinking of a halibut or salmon trip this summer, give us a call or send us an e-mail!
We’re available 7 days a week at (250) 880 0636 or firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to seeing you this summer.
