Once in a very long while, you stumble into someone’s life and instantly become “old friends”.  You know, the type of friend that makes you feel that you can share just about anything.  There is an instant connection, and in minutes you know more about each other than most friends know over decades.  These moments, […]

We have been working hard over the last nine months to obtain our commercial drone license with Transport Canada so we can offer aerial drone photography services to our clients.  This past weekend we received our first official SFOC to fly at Genoa Bay, a tiny marina community that is hidden deep in the Cowichan […]

We have just returned from a whirlwind tour of the northern parts of Vancouver Island, visiting three very remote communities in the short span of three days, traveling over 1,000 kilometers and seeing things that have left a permanent and profound impact on us.  This experience will follow us all our lives.  Along with a […]

Each year we try to attend an event that is held just around the corner from The Hollow, that is the annual “Maple Bay Wooden Boat Festival”.  This event attracts the attention of classic wooden boat enthusiasts from all points of the world, and is held at our very own picturesque Maple Bay Marina.  This […]
