  • Great place for mindfulness practice, meditation, contemplation, solitude, and observation of nature. A favorite with locals, this donation-based Retreat Center is open to the public on a daily basis (safe for when there is a retreat, so check the website!). Enjoy great views of Gastineau Channel, friendly visitors and staff, a carefully made labyrinth, short hikes, native and exotic flora, carefully tended flower gardens, local fauna including resident marmots🐾 and opportunities for whale🐋🐳watching, picnic tables, a constantly evolving Cairn Zen Rock Garden by the beach, a coffee shop, and religious paraphernalia.
  • Awe inspiring and gorgeous, St There's's Shrine compels one to sit and reflect, to be still for awhile. What a treasure to be silent, to listen instead of to talk, to just be in the presence of holiness. In a world that applauds the loud, the wealthy, the ultimate in busy experience, how refreshing to take in the most gorgeous landscape we have seen in many years. Little do many recognize the grandeur in solitude. There, all alone, you might discover that you never were alone at all.
  • Great place, serenity, and right now salmon are running up the small stream here.
  • The rental car company told us that we might see whales here if we are lucky. Equipped with binoculars, we follows the whale watching boats in the bay and saw spouting and back humpbacks.
  • Great place for meditation. A local favorite.
