Orveas Bay Resort

As a celebration of our 40th wedding anniversary, my sister Heather, her husband Rob and my mother, Lois arranged a stay for us at Orveas Bay Resort on the oceanfront of southern Vancouver Island. In addition, they also prepared the delicious dinner we took to the resort. Heather and Rob visited us in the afternoon with snacks and drinks and we all enjoyed the spectacular scenery and views, then in the evening, Debi and I sat in the hot tub for hours as the sun set, overlooking the ocean, the passing cruise ships all lit up and the distant snow-capped Olympic Mountains of Washington State as a backdrop to the Straits of Juan de Fuca. We tried hard to remember something or non-work event from each of our 40 years... I think we couldn't remember 1979 (it wasn't even the 1960s!). Then we spent hours rating the best beaches we had visited, the castles, the tourist attractions, the hikes, the ruins, the churches or abbeys or cathedrals, the towns or cities, the countries etc. until we were too wrinkled to remain in the tub. We returned to the cottage for the night to enjoy the wonderful place that the owners have made so welcoming. We think we might be back to celebrate our 50th anniversary. To Heather and Rob and Mom... thank you for such a thoughtful way to help us celebrate this milestone. If you want to see more of the resort than the pictures I have taken here, this is the website...www.orveasbay.com.
