BC is such a beautiful province. I’m amazed at how many different and beautiful places there are and even though I’ve lived here all my life I have yet to see many of them! I saw the Okanagan and the Kootenays last year for the first time and was amazed at how different the terrain was. I felt like I was in a different country! Some of the scenery was what you would see in the movies. Stunning!!!
Would love a nice stay at the painters lodge, what a great summer get away it would make. Here is to hoping, crossing fingers for the draw
Would make a few dreams come true!
I want to go there!

I used to go to Campbell River when I was a kid to visit my great-grandparents… it will always be a very special place to me & I would love to go back. I can remember my Dad taking me fishing there when I was only 8 or 9 and it was the first time I ever salt-water fished… pretty exciting for a boy from Edmonton~!
Fantastic picture. Hate to admit it, but I was raised in BC and have never been to Campbell River!
