It's cold out!

by Linda Wegner on 02/12/19

Why do birds sing

by Linda Wegner on 01/28/19

A Message from Linda Wegner
Situated on the west coast of British Columbia, Powell River is a geographically isolated community with access to Vancouver Island or the Lower Mainland, including Vancouver, only by plane or boat.

Our scenery is spectacular and the opportunities for outdoors activities, abundant. Take a look and avoid being jealous, if you can. The photos above are courtesy of Sean Percy, outdoor enthusiast and scuba diver.

Thank you to you all for your love and support.
