In July 2010 my wife and I and two friends from Jasper, Alberta spent a week touring the Sunshine Coast and the east coast of Vancouver Island. The weather and scenery were perfect, but we expected that.
What we did not expect was to find a gem of a B&B in Union Bay on the east coast of Vancouver Island south of Courtenay. The Two Eagles Lodge
, operated by Carolyn and Steve Touhey is a diamond in the rough. These two ex-pat Yanks from Maryland, USA have fallen in love with Vancouver Island and are not afraid to tell you so. Their enthusiasm and genuine hospitality makes a visit to Two Eagles Lodge like a visit with friends.
The highlights of our two night stay were the Maryland style crab bake put on by our hosts and then the tie dye party that followed. We were able to relax, swap stories and genuinely feel like we were at home. I would highly recommend a stay at the Two Eagles Lodge.
When we got home we put on our new tie dyed shirts and thought back to the great time we had.
