Bamfield on the road to recovery
The properties of Hawkeye Marine Group are currently being renovated so that over half of them will be occupied and sustainable within 3 months time. The Trails Lodge and the Hawkeyes nest Pub will be open full time for the peak season under a confident and successful management team, the remaining properties will be restored and developed thereafter in respect to a plan that is shared by the OCP (Bamfield Official Community Plan). Mr Jack Purdy has become a involved community member and is hopeful of a resolution in the interests of the Bamfield community, its organizations and it business's. Help support this opportunity and share in its growth. informed citizen of Bamfield BC

Impressive photos
The photos are excellent.... but where is the famous Halifax rain and fog? Looks like you had a wonderful time, and covered all the sights as always.

Great report on Abu Simbel
We are planning our trip to Egypt in Nov.2010 and didn't want to do the rush visit to Abu Simbel. Your photos and description confirm our feelings to go slower. Thanks from Victoria BC

Not suitable for seniors with long lines
Expect to stand hours in lines and poor seniors are not always accommodated. This is especially the case with the Canadian Mint Display. On two occasions, the hosts didn't allow my 84 year old mother to by-pass the four hours line up ! We gave up. However, the Art Gallery, and Russian Exhibits were a lot more accommodating for seniors and did allow us to by-pass the long lines. Jim

I remember hearing about the restaurant, but I couldn't tell you where it is located if it is still in business. I think it was located in Gastown. There is a restaurant by the same name at the Capilano Mall in North Vancouver. Sorry I can't help!

Olympic Pins
That post was very informative. This will be the first time I have attended an Olympics and I am curious to see what this pin trading is all about. However, I am a beginner and I don't think I will be making any trades. I also just did a post on pin trading on my blog I can certainly verify that it is addicting! Have fun in Vancouver. Hope to run into you somewhere.

Finding accomodation during Olympics
Searching Tourism Vancouver's site, try calling Vancouver's Howard Johnson Plaza Hotel on Kingsway @ 12th Avenue (1-800-663- 5713). Eastside, not a tourist area, but relatively central and safe. Hard finding affordable hotels. I would not generally recommend it, but outside the downtown core, easy walk to Main Street, lots of transit options. Hotels may become available closer to the Games. Have you looked into renting a room in a private home for a couple of nights (1-888-523-6090) That seems to be the most affordable option if you can find one. Alot of people thought they could rent their homes and make alot of money. Not the case, so there might be some good deals. Good luck with your search. Send me another comment to reply to in case I come up with something. If you message me, I will see your email and then it would be easier to communicate. Good luck with your search

finding a hostel of hotel
Thanks for your website. It is very helpful. I am a friend of Fred and Marlene's from the US. My daughter and I am coming to the Olympics Feb 25-26 and I have called all over to find a room. everything is booked that I have called. I wanted to find something, perhaps, close to the Pacific Collusium. We are going to an event at Cypress Mt and Pacific Collesium on Feb. 26. Any suggestions on where to stay?

Painting Our Towns Red
Organizing a Paint the Office Red in Downtown Vancouver two weeks before opening ceremony and plan on attending the torch relay celebrations in Vancouver and Richmond where it should be a sea of red and white. Whether we can get to celebrations around Metro Vancouver, I'm not sure, but I'll try. I hope you will go red and be part of the wave of enthusiasm. Thanks for your interest!

very informative website, will you be highlighting neighborhoods that have painted the town red?
