Our First Annual Adventurers’ Getaway was a total success. The lodge is located right on some of Canada’s finest real estate overlooking the vast Pacific Ocean. With 2 beaches and 40 acres of privacy, Middle Beach Lodge is the perfect setting for both the adventurer at heart as well as just curling up to read a book in front of the central fireplace. From the comfort of the Great Room, some of us sipped coffee and watched while others were tempting the cold waters of the pacific. Friday had a few who managed to paddle the surge created from the tsunami that devastated Japan the night before, a sombre reminder that Mother Nature is a force to be respected. A good night’s rest saw the group of us paddling in the protected waters off Grice Bay due to southwest wind warnings. After a gourmet dinner prepared by some of Tofino’s finest chefs, we all gathered in the great room to attend Colin Angus’ private Saturday evening presentation on his award winning adventure film ‘Amazon From Source to Sea’. With the sound of crashing waves in the background, Colin captivated us with a personal narration of his five month excursion down the world’s most dangerous river. The weekend finished off with a day of playing with long boats in the surf zone. This was our first event at Middle Beach Lodge, but it certainly won’t be our last. While it’s going to be hard to top this, next year’s event is shaping up to be as inspiring.
Here are a couple of photos from the weekend.
