I just spent a wonderful weekend with my daughter at the Tigh-Na-Mara Resort on Vancouver Island.  It was great to stay in a cosy room overlooking tall arbutus and cedar trees.  We sat in the hot tub and talked, relaxed in the sauna and talked, shared delicious appetizers while enjoying a cocktail and talked, sat up late in the night in front of the fire and, you guessed it, talked.  The room was so comfortable we didn’t want to leave it.  I was fortunate to have won an over night stay at this renowned resort at the BC Association of Travel Writers  symposium last year.

 

 

 

The next morning, as part of the package, we spent time in the beautiful Grotto Mineral Pool. Set in a natural stone looking grotto with a warm water pool infused with natural minerals and trace elements from Hungary, we detoxified our bodies and rejuvenated our spirits. There was also a two-story waterfall, an invigorating glacial plunge cascade and a non-mineralized whirlpool to enjoy.  We followed this with a visit to the relaxation lounge, only robes and pool sandals allowed, where we enjoyed fresh fruit and herb tea while sitting in big comfy chairs made of cedar logs.  Needless to say, we left without a care in the world.

It is so wonderful to have a daughter I could share this experience with and who I can talk freely with and discuss all manner of things.  This weekend was just what I needed.  We both left detoxified and rejuvenated indeed!!  Ready to face the weeks ahead.

Have you had any short get-aways with someone special lately that left you relaxed and happy?
