Hostel manager was more than kind to stay up a half hour late to greet me. Very good experience with a lovely hostel, in a terrific location. They should get more visitors out there if they could have some more publicity for the place---really nice!

Had an excellent time talking with the host and his guests. He was very helpful and informative. Learned several new things and just had an interesting conversation.

The new "learn how to fire a cannon" program at Fort Wllington (www.pc.gc.ca/wellington). This is a Canadian National Park so you will need a passport to travel from the States.
