Train Spotting: Highway 1 Craigellachie to Field, British Columbia, Canada

We decided to end the second wonderful day of train spotting at the beautiful Three Valley Lake Chateau. Built and operated by the Bell family, this is an ideal spot for the rail fan. With excellent accommodation and restaurant, the feature for us was Three Valley Gap Ghost Town which includes a roundhouse with several rail cars and locomotive. And the meticulously dismantled, moved and reconstructed CPR’s Bellevue Hotel – complete with the original crockery and the historic menu of the day. Get a great preview from 3valley.com. Read more…

Train Spotting: Highway 1 Lytton to Craigellachie, British Columbia, Canada

We decided to stay at the Kumsheen Rafting Resort located a few kilometres east of Lytton in the scenic Thompson River canyon.

We chose the well-priced “yurt” – the best of both worlds, sleeping in a tent with comfortable bed and solid deck below. We had a fabulous meal on the patio of Cutting Board Restaurant and bonus – we could hear the westbound CPR trains just below the resort as well as the eastbound CNR trains across the canyon.

A weekend at the Sunshine Coast Resort, Madeira Park, British Columbia

Early in the spring, I happened upon a great online deal for two nights at the Sunshine Coast Resort. I had never been to this particular resort, but it is near Madeira Park, a part of the coast that I love. Browsing the resort’s website, my partner and I were impressed by the location and amenities, and we opted for the deluxe accommodations. We were not disappointed. Two nights away in this beautiful spot was just what we needed to recharge our batteries in the midst of a long and stressful spring! Read more…
