August is going to happen very soon.

July 26, 2011

Sea Fair has come and gone.  The smell of cotton candy and dougnuts, the screams of joy and terror, the bingo callers, the sand castle event, the parade and the speeches are all over for another year.

A big thank you for the organizers.

But in the mean time, now that summer MAY be upon us,  water  is  on our minds.

“Face in the water. Eyes open”

" All the way out to Lang Bay for a picnic " 1938





Have a great safe summer everyone.

We are the coolest place in town.

Come and visit us during the hot days ( ok, we can hope ) as we are a COOL destination.

We are open 7 days a week 9 – 4:30 and then  perhaps visit the Powell River Forestry Museum across at Willingdon Beach or visit Dr. Henderson’s house in the Townsite Tues – Friday 12 – 4pm.
