They say Disneyland is the "happiest place on Earth," but for my family this past Thanksgiving it was the Ocean Village Beach Resort in Tofino, BC. We gathered here, as we had before, to celebrate.
The weather, well we could not asked for better; mid-twenties everyday. Both Mackenzie Beach and Long Beach became giant playgrounds for us. A rousing game of bocce; frisbee on the OVB lawns; exploring the tidal pools nearby.
The staff at the Ocean Village Beach Resort exceeded our expectations. The first morning there i desperatly needed a cup of tea; however, the tea was in my parents cabin. I went over to the office, and seeing as how it was closed, headed back to the cabin. One of the resort employees stopped to offer his assistance. I told him my dilemma, and he led me back to the office, which he then opened, and presented me with 2 bags of tea and a package of hot chocolate. Upon checkout the staff also forgave the fact that someone had lost one of the room keys (which we later found) and that we had inadvertantly missplaced some of the dishes between the 3 cabins we were renting.
While there, we made use of the outdoor barbque and picnic area. Discovering something new at the OVB Resort is always a treat. We shall be sure to return again soon!
