Whether you're a resident or a visitor, everyone has a 'Bowen story'. As with many visitors and residents, my husband, David, and I have a story of how we arrived and feel in love with Bowen. Our friend and RMT Extraordinaire, Harmony Shire
, was working in Vancouver and had just moved the month befossion, Harmony was talking to David about how much she was loving the Island and how much healthier she felt being on Bowen. It was a Friday morning. My husband walked out of seeing Harmony and called me to suggest we look at getting a B&B on the Island for the weekend. We needed to check out this mysterious and miraculous place called Bowen.
By 8pm that night, we were snuggled into The Guest House
on Mount Gardner Road. We spent the weekend, visiting Snug Cove, touring the neighborhoods, enjoying the fresh air, the calm of Bowen’s bucolic forests and hills....and actually doing a bit of work remotely as well from amongst the glorious green and forests of our new-found home.
Just as Harmony described, we loved how Bowen felt –this amazing, laid-back, rejuvenating spirit. We felt as if an Island-size “ahhhhhh” descended over our stressed out City-living bodies.
Less than four months later, my husband and I had bought our dream home and moved into a life for which we are grateful every day.
