“I came out here on vacation one time to play golf, and I was surprised that there was actually some clean air on the West Coast. I went back to Chicago, packed my things, and never looked back,” said 92-year-old Robert Drolet at the harbor while people watching and strumming a guitar he got from his nephew. “Forty-nine years later, I’m still in paradise!” he added.
“Every weekend, we try to go hiking, and this place is one of our favorites in the area,” said John Rose after maneuvering down a rock formation at The Playgrounds, a trail and rock-climbing spot off of Kinevan Road. Rose and some friends came out to enjoy the evening and take pictures. “This is a bit more secluded and off the beaten path from Lizard’s Mouth, but the view and rock formations are just as great!” he said.
