Pamela & Teddy's Trip

Part Three


What an enchanting drive it is along the western side of Vancouver Island. The forested coastline folds and unfolds, curve after curve, each lined with towering cedars and evergreens, the giants interspersed with the reds, oranges, golds of Liquid Ambers and Aspen . Every color of the changing season signaled the advance of winter weather.
The adventures holed-up in Sooke Harbour House for three days...a retreat to match any found in Europe . The Raven's Nest, the top floor suite, has a lovely outside deck and a floor-to-ceiling view across the straits of San Juan de Fuca to the Olympic Range of Washington State.

Every evening the travelers watched fishing boats return from a day at sea...

How about having a bath in the living room? With the sounds and scent of a cheerful cedar wood fire snapping and crackling, and a view like the ones on this page? Hard to beat.

It's a well-crafted suite...obviously finished by talented hands...and cozy as any place one might want to hang out... .

Think of the work that went into making this hand-carved bed!

Teddy had to check out the tree. He was sure that he caught the aroma of honey... .

Well...maybe he was just showing off to Tinker. He was overheard telling her about his aspirations to become a racecar driver, and his plans for acquiring a classic British automobile. Teddy has a wide range of interests... .

For the most part he was content to sit in the big deck chair and enjoy ocean breezes.
Easy to see why... .

When it got too cold, or after sunset, the bears retired to sit inside by the fire... .

Day two found the romancing pair hiking through the forest...Teddy always keeping one eye out for honey trees and the other one on his new honey....

The Princess talked her companions into a trip to French Beach. What a beautiful beach it is! Teddy was his usual protective self, but seemed to enjoy the sound of waves and the driftwood... .
