Rodney Times - - YOUR PAPER, YOUR PLACE - - Rhon­wyn

My fam­ily came to visit re­cently and I had some time off to show them the sights. View­ing the Hibis­cus Coast and greater Rod­ney re­gion through the eyes of a tourist is re­ally re­ward­ing. My fam­ily was amazed at the abun­dance of marine life in Gulf Har­bour, and we en­joyed our ferry trip to the city. Some­one from my group men­tioned a week­end ferry ser­vice would be worth­while, a sen­ti­ment shared by many of you. We vis­ited mag­i­cal Man­gawhai where it’s easy to see why peo­ple fall in love with an area and never want to leave (See P4), and we walked to the look­out at Shake­spear Re­serve, tak­ing in the sweep­ing views from the edge of the penin­sula. If you’re look­ing for some­thing to do with the kids these hol­i­days, Wa­ter­fall Gully is look­ing great af­ter all the rain we’ve had re­cently. While it’s easy to get side­tracked by all the neg­a­tive is­sues - traf­fic, park­ing, etc, I en­cour­age you to take some time to ap­pre­ci­ate our beau­ti­ful sur­rounds - we re­ally are very lucky.
