Chamber BBQ a great success

On June 23, Two Eagles Lodge had the opportunity to host the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce’s annual BBQ.   We’re pleased to say that they sold-out two weeks in advance (very unusual) and we had a great time.  As always, Steve and I enjoy meeting new people and making new friends.

We are pleased that our home has worked into being a warm and inviting venue, as an alternative to hotels and commercial spots.

Since we truly feel we own a slice of paradise, it sure is nice to share it!   Thanks to all who came  and enjoyed…to the musicians who played, and to Corae and Laura for coordinating every last detail.   CHEERS!

Great Music & New Friends

As sponsors of the Vancouver Island Music Business Conference, we are privileged to meet some incredible musicians. And, by hosting some of them at Two Eagles Lodge, we get to enjoy more than their music. Just this weekend, we had great meals and fire-side chats (complete with some super guitar playing) from Ralph Murphy, Dan Hill, and Steve Wilkinson.

This coming week, these performers will join others staying in Courtenay to take stage at various venues for what promises to be another incredible music week in the Comox Valley.

We look forward to connecting with our old friends who’ve stayed here for previous conferences, including Ron Irving, Jamie Warren, and Bill Henderson.

While Shari Ulrich is not here for this event, she’s coming to do a house concert on August 11.


Island life is amazing

We live in such a great place.  On Thursday night, after checking in a couple of great guests, we ran to Courtenay to run errands and grab a bite to eat.  Enjoyed some great music from local guitarists/songwriters Anela and Luke while eating at Comox’s newer restaurant, Island Tides, where Kathy works hard to make it all great.   And, it’s worth the drive.

We had a bicycling group here from Oregon, a couple from the Netherlands, and then a couple of new Comox friends who got our donated accommodations certificate at a charity auction and chose to celebrate their birthdays here.  We also enjoyed the company of Jean Pare, the entrepreneur behind Company’s Coming cookbook series.

On Saturday, we bought Rhododendrons at the Rotary sale, and on Sunday, we visited a friend who just got home from triple bypass surgery, and enjoyed dinner at Horne Lake with other great friends.   That’s one you have to check out, too–  What an incredible artist.  She is doing a floor mosaic for a retirement home in Edmonton, which has more than 500 hand-cut pieces of stone in a beautiful floral pattern reflective of Alberta flora; and her little “gift” pieces–trivets and candle holders–are just awesome works of natural beauty.

Off to work on projects for SmartBiz clients and looking forward to our Chamber of Commerce BBQ on June 23.   Life is good…
