Thanks Shady Rest

A huge thank-you to The Shady Rest for being incredibly helpful and absolutely wonderful in the face of an unexpected medical emergency

A huge thank-you bouquet goes to the staff of The Shady Rest restaurant in Qualicum Beach (especially Shannon, Donna, Joel and Tom) for being incredibly helpful and absolutely wonderful in the face of an unexpected medical emergency encountered in the midst of what should have been a leisurely “Happy Birthday” lunch.

Not only are the food, atmosphere and view always spectacular at The Shady, the staff were beyond amazing at a time of need.

Special thanks also go to Alison and her ambulance partner, arriving in mere moments to get everything looked after with wonderfully calm, friendly and professional care.

This was one of those things you hope will never happen to you or your friends, but it all turned out OK thanks to the exceptionally supportive and caring people around us. Thank-you all.
