By The Quay Bed and Breakfast

By the Quay B&B Hostess - Rose

Since retiring in 2006 from School District #70 where she taught primary school for 33 years, Rose joined the Port Alberni Sunshine club where she enrolled in a variety of activities - tai chi chih, watercolour painting, photography, limber up exercises, singing and drumming. Through Port Alberni Parks and Recreation Rose enjoys daily swims at the indoor pool as well as weekly yoga classes.

Also upon retiring Rose started traveling with family members. The first fall she headed off to Eastern Canada for a fall foliage tour with her sister. Since then she’s been to Saskatchewan and Las Vegas with her husband, Great Britain with her sister again, Hawaii with her son, Ireland and Scotland with a dear friend from Victoria. There have been numerous short stays away from the B&B during the off season with her husband Don who is a Francophone.

Also after leaving the classroom behind, she opened up the By the Quay B&B on Kingsway Avenue just a few short blocks from the Lady Rose Marine services. Her life has been blessed by her many guests from around the world that she has been privileged to meet in her own home.

Rose enjoys planning home improvements and is constantly working with her contractor to upgrade the value of the house and yard at 2959 Kingsway Avenue, Port Alberni.
