Dayout on Bowen Island

Meet at Horseshoe bay express bus stop at 10:45am (outside hudson bay co) nearby seymour exit (left, then left around the corner at W Georgia) from granville station, take 11am bus to the ferry (if you miss the bus don't worry catch then next one (257/250); as have plenty of time to catch up and buy lunch and supplies on arrival; as the ferry only leaves at 12:10 (cost $11), will then walk to the lake on Bowen and have tranquil lunch, then continue on at whatever pace with feel like on the day (see the waterfalls, walk up Gardner for the view, walk for the woods, whatever). Afterwards can go into Snug cove for a drink (very friendly pub, had wonderful time last week, locals are very friendly). Ferries leave every hour till 10pm and buses run all night so can depart as a group or separately. Return bus just outside ferry terminal.

    I must say that the day did not turn out well for me. I drove to Horseshoe bay and when I got to the ferry I didn't see anyone or any sign of the group. Not sure if I missed something in the information but I also walked to the lake when I got there and didn't see the group. I spent the day alone, still enjoyed it but very disappointed that when I got off the ferry there was no one there. I took the 11:10 as per messages left below. I'm not sure what went wrong and for a person who wanted to meet new people, I have to say that for me this was very disappointing. Not sure I will venture out again.

      Oh no! Is it that my bad? My comment was a response to Gord about fare not time... I should have added $ sign before 11.10, but I just copied & pasted from BC Ferry fare page.

      Anyways, I think it's important to read through all event details before signing up & ask questions if you need clarification or comment if your plan to meet at the different spot & time rather than meeting spot.
      Next time, try to be at the meeting point early to avoid disappointment.
      As organizers are volunteers and everyone should be mature adults to respect everyone's time.

      You probably got there earlier than us, we got there after 1pm. Hopefully in the future you will have better experience in other events.

    I was wondering if it's $11 for one way? I look forward to seeing everyone. Thanks for organizing Shaun!

      Can't go as I have other plans but I believe going to Bowen costs money, coming from Bowen is free. Essentially the fare is for a return trip.

    Ok Will keep it for Thursday then. Will start off pretty relaxed so should be ok for all; even the sleepwalkers. If anyone misses the bus; catch the next one (even the slow bus) as we are not taking the ferry till 12:10 so plenty of time to catchup. See you all Thursday, and thanks for signing up. Should be a fun day.

      I'm okay with either. I think Friday would be better for me, as I know I'll be pretty tired on Thursday.

      I'd say I have a slight preference for Friday, but it's not a big deal

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
