Season winding down

Canadian Princess Resort - September 13, 2006

Vancouver Island halibut fishingWell the crunch is on, with four days left in the season. The resort is buzzing with activity; the weather is fabulous, the fishing still outstanding, and eco-adventure tours spotting humpback whales. The staff are excited for the upcoming staff party, which is held the evening of the last day, and always sure to be a good time.

The last few days we had 70 Air Canada pilots with us at the resort. I must say they drew a lot of interest from the women working at the resort. Our crew had a great time taking out these professional fly-boys, and they have pre-booked for the 2007 season with 84 people this time.
