After a rather damp start to summer, we have had a month of beautiful weather here on the west coast. The delayed arrival of summer sun seems on point for this year as it matches our re-opening after our 100 days of COVID-19 closure, however, we are back in action!

Of course we don’t take the wonderful ability to welcome you for granted. We have developed a detailed plan incorporating best practices to meet or exceed all public health recommendations and ensure we have adapted our services and facilities to keep everyone—staff and guests—safe. Health and safety is always top of mind here, and we are continuing to follow and update our internal plan, to incorporate all new or revised recommendations from our Public Health Officer and WorkSafe BC, our provincial work safety partner.

As a community, we have become more familiar with some changes in our daily activities and you’ll certainly see a few differences in the offerings around town, but everyone has been working hard to ensure enjoyable and safe experiences. If you have any questions, our concierge is only a phone call away. We are always available to chat about which activities are best for your next visit and happy to look into any considerations you may have even if it is just finding the perfect spot to park your beach chair for the afternoon.

One of the region’s greatest wonders and attractions is, of course, our incredible natural setting. From the wide open beaches and old growth forests of Pacific Rim National Park to our own protected corner at North Chesterman Beach, the calm waters of Clayoquot Sound and adventurous waters of the outer coast we have much to appreciate, experience and enjoy. With the relaxing gentle summer days of August now upon us, there’s something about the continuity of the seasons, and the daily ebb and flow of the tides nudging the routines of our coastal wildlife, that remind us how resilient we are.

We have been so pleased to see the return of so many local friends from British Columbia since reopening, and for those further afield we look forward to the day we can welcome you back to our sunny summer shores as well.

To all of you we send our best and until we meet again stay calm, stay safe and be kind to those you encounter as we all stay strong for those around us.
