What a fabulous day we had yesterday, June 8th at the 15th anniversary celebration of the Sandpiper Golf and Resort at Rowena’s on the River. Entertainment went late into the night after a full day of golf, appy’s, drinks, BBQ under the tent, power point slide of the memories and of course the Fraser Blues flew in their planes to do fly over’s for the guests and the owners. Both Betty Anne and her husband Doug are a fantastic couple who have lent their family home to the vision of guests in beautiful cabins (hardly a cabin) along with a gorgeous bed and breakfast in the large mansion, surrounded by majestic cedar trees, rivers, swimming pool, hot tub and on the banks of the the fabulous Harrison River, in Harrison Mills, B.C. What a privilege to be invited to participate in the family and guests celebration. General manager Chris was also on hand with his lovely friend Jeannette to learn about the vision of the property and the stunning 18 Hole Par 3 Professional and highly regarded Golf Course. We were entertained by a fantastic band, that played into the night, and were severed a delicious wine from domaine de chaberton. The winery is a personal favorite of mine and I was so pleased to be able to enjoy the wine!I am pretty certain the “blend” of delicious white wine, contained Bacchus, a white they are famous for!
The night ended with a spectacular display of stunning fire works that are as fantastic as any I have seen and there were only a few hundred feet away, along the river and of course, being that this was an invitation only and private event, there were no traffic issues. We left the evening at around 10:10 and arrived home at 11:00 pm. It was very enjoyable, that it wasn’t such a long drive and certainly had we have been in Vancouver the drive would have been longer and the traffic intense.
On a final note the Fraser Blues, leader, George who is also the manager of the Langley Airport was the lead of the Snowbirds and Langley Airport will be celebrating their 75th anniversary the week of June 19th. On Friday, June 21 they are having 75 planes fly in procession in and out of the airport to represent their 75 years! it starts at 5:30 and i will be there!
What a night! Please enjoy the pictures and videos here.
Thanks again Betty Anne and Doug and Chris! Wonderful night!
