Birthday dinner #3 – Locals Restaurant at the Old House

We spent the holidays over on Vancouver Island this year.  There didn’t seem to be too many fine dining choices in the Comox Valley area, but it was recommended we go to Locals Restaurant in Courtenay, so for my official birthday dinner celebration with Hitman that’s where we went.  They’re known for sourcing their food locally […]

Hot Chocolates & CakeBread Bakery

So Hitman took me to a place in downtown Courtenay called Hot Chocolates for…wait for it….Hot Chocolate!! Now Hot […]

Fanny Bay Inn

Over the May long weekend Hitman and I went to the island for a mini vacation.  He’s lived his childhood here so he was a great tour guide, showing me his childhood hangouts and whatnot, and telling me all about the shenanigans he’s caused with his friends back then ;P Along the way to his […]

Beacon Landing Seafood Restaurant

There are quite a lot of places to eat around Sidney actually.  SheShe and I were just lazy and didn’t want to walk far from our lodging, so we had a few meals at the MickeyD’s next door unfortunately. But we got all dressed up one night for a Wine & Cheese at the local […]
