Re: Kiss Squirrel Cove Goodbye?

"Paving Paradise" was right. My family would no more use that place than hang out in Seattle all summer. Buddha forbid it doesn't happen. One of our favorite and most magical cruising memories was finding a whole mass of sea cucumbers in the lagoon!

It's right that Refuge Cove and Lund provide all of anything you need in that area, and that doesn't count Campbell River or Madeira Park. The last thing the area needs is more amenities!

Ask for a lot, settle for a bit less than half of what you were asking. Not a new tactic around here for development.

Good thing there isn't a sacred site there, or anything that needs protecting. Otherwise there'd need to be First Nations protesters and media all over the place to avoid the damage.


Just found the first place to cross of the list of places I ever want to visit.

Who knows, maybe a new species would be found like the great "spirit bear".

For those not in the know, that is what enviros pounced on in the west coast of BC which is not a species at all, just a white color phase of the common black bear. There is nothing genetically different about it.
