Bastion Pier Launch Party

Last night we attended the Bastion Pier Launch Party, a joint effort by BC Whale Tours, Lido Bistro, Somersby Apple Cider, Moon Brewery & Pub, Golf Central & Doug's Gone Fishing. After a rather unstable day, the weather settled down and provided us with a warm spring evening to enjoy festivities on the pier. Moon Brewery and Pub had their very own locally brewed beer to sample. The new owners are making German style beer in their brewery. Somersby Apple Cider was also there with samples, we thought it was one of the best ciders we have ever tasted. Doug's Gone Fishing caught some fresh halibut and provided delicious fish tacos for the group. BC Whale Tours took people for rides on the Tika and the Luna, two of the three tour boats they operate. The Tika flies like the wind and can handle rough water better than any whale boat on the island. The Luna has indoor seating with spacious windows and is very solid in the water. Thanks to Tom, Harold (owner) and Russ for being such congenial hosts. BC Whale Tours staff also provided the canned music for the event to round out the experience. Judging from the big smiles all around, a great time was had by all, networking with other people in the tourism industry. Touring the inner and outer harbour by boat always provides a unique experience that we never tire of. There is so much to see and every time we do it, we always see something new. Last night it was a welder very high up in the rigging of a fishing boat. Out in the strait, the views of the Olympic Mountains in Washington State are also ever changing. Thanks to all who participated in the "Launch" at Bastion Pier.  For more pictures, please go to the VGSN Facebook Page.

Good site! I really love how it is simple on my eyes and the data are well written. I am wondering how I could be notified whenever a new post has been made. I have subscribed to your RSS feed which must do the trick! Have a great day! “You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.” by Eric Hoffer.
