When I was little, every year my dad would take me to Goldstream park to see the salmon run. Now that I live on the island again, it's my turn to take my kids. There is something about this place that I love. Maybe it's the huge trees, the sound of the eagles, the way the stream winds it's way through the forest or the nature house that reminds me of the 70's in it's simple way of engaging childrens interests. Or maybe its the way that it seems entirely possible that the gnomies live there, under the twisty roots of an old tree as my son was so convinced of yesterday. And although we didn't see many salmon, I, along with my kids agree, this place is magic.
