The west coast of Vancouver Island has some of the best hiking trails in North America for hikers at every level. Your days
can be filled from dawntill dusk exploring the beautiful forests from East Sooke to Port Renfrew as well as the long stretches of
beach that run along the coastline. Eschewing active pursuits, you may choose to just stay home and lounge on the deck
overlooking our front lawn or sit in front of the stone fireplace and read a book you've been longing to read
without interruption. The house is filled with wonderful coffee table books showcasing the countries we lived in,
contemporary Thai or Balinese furnishings, Angkor Wat plus plus. You can also select something that catches your eye
from the small but eclectic library we have housed in a absorbing the aestheticbeauty of Eastern art or
listen to any of our music from a fantastic 300 odd CD collection.
So far this winter has been fairly mild compared to 2017 when we experienced a considerable amount of snow for Sooke!
The property was a winter wonderland and so was everything around it. and so was everything around it.
