We first stayed at Mary’s little hideaway back in 2005, a beautiful cottage loft in the enchanting town of Gibsons in BC’s sunshine coast.
Mary’s a lovely woman and brilliant artist, she turned what used to be a warehouse for prop storage for the old CBC show The Beachcombers into charming cottage lofts, it’s also her home.
It’s so easy to feel at home here at Mary’s, it’s warm and welcoming – the house, the calm, the lush gardens reminds me of my grandmother’s little house in Koforidua.
Last time we stayed here, we promised we’d bring our mom here one day, and that’s exactly what we did this weekend.
And in this place, she too saw elements of her little house so far, far away.
“Look at the gates… like my gates in Koforidua” She exclaimed
Yesterday, my brother Joe came for the day, and we took a long drive with wonderful stops along Roberts Creek, Davis Bay, Sechelt, Halfmoon Bay, Pender Harbour and Egmont to the Skookumchuck Narrows.
We did small hikes, picnicked and dipped our toes in lakes and inlets.
