October seems traditionally to be spent deciding what to build, improve upon, or renovate over the winter. Not this year, this year we jumped in feet first and got busy. The restaurant continues to be in a state of dusty creativity as paint is peeled back, carpet ripped up and the sander works over time. A fresh facelift for the restaurant was long overdue and we can’t wait to reveal the results in time for the 2018 season.
But the restaurant wasn’t the only project that was tackled this month, the purr of the excavator and the cracking sound of falling trees became commonplace. Blind Channel is growing and it was time to clear the back 40. A new building is in the works servicing a growing summer staff and an increasing demand for off-season rentals.
It’s been tough to keeping up with all the work on the property as Blind Channel’s little water taxi service is not so little anymore with four boats constantly moving. The busy boats can be found anywhere between Campbell River and Port McNeill with frequent forays up wild inlets and around desolate islands. All this coastal exploration keeps us in touch with the local wildlife as humpback whales and Dall’s porpoises become particularly plentiful in October.
Thanks for joining us this October, stay tuned for project updates in November!
