    The food is big city quality....in a rural setting. The ingredients were very fresh and served up by friendly staff. They play very cool music...and they have a collection of licence plates on the wall...stretching back to 1904!

    Favorite Dish: Smoked salmon salad with baby potatoes and balsamic dressing..mmmm.....

North Pender Island Off The Beaten Path

    North Pender Island offers a free! Disc golf park. There is a lot of trust on the island so the park is freely available and unmanned with discs available for loan (there is a notice asking they not be stolen).

    Playing Disc golf is a lot of fun, especially on the 27 hole course. The "holes" are either tall metal pipes that clang when hit or a basket. Near each one is a marker showing the direction and distance to the next "hole." Since just throwing a disc at something is not as much fun the course makes you throw through and around trees and over rocky mounds as you scramble and laugh while looking for your disc.

    I really thought it would be be kind of boring but we quckly were laughing at each others bad throws and cheering when a shot curved around a tree, sliced through a bush and hit the target.

    I recommend this as a fun and energetic hour or two play activity for the whole family.
