The arrival of spring has most of us anticipating warm breezes and cool dips in the ocean. But before we can welcome those May flowers, we must brace for the April showers that are necessary and inevitable. When a rainy forecast dampens plans for outdoor fun, don’t despair! Instead, check out these suggestions for things to do on a rainy day on Pender Island:
 
Curl up with a good book:
 
On North Pender Island, less than a 15 minute drive away from Poet’s Cove Resort, Talisman Books & Gallery is a book lover’s haven. This cozy bookshop has a great selection of both new and used books in every genre, including classics, biography, fiction, non-fiction, and the best new releases. Spend some time browsing the shelves, and then check out the stock of other fun finds like sketchbooks, cards, toys, and even chocolate. Pick out a new read and head back to your cozy room at Poet’s Cove, where you can dive into a brand new world while the ambient rain taps at your window. 
 
Relax with a luxurious bath:
 
Every room, villa, and cottage at Poet’s Cove Resort includes a deep soaker tub in your ensuite bathroom — why not make good use of it? A dreary day is the perfect time to fill up the tub and soak away the time. For an extra splash of luxury, don’t skimp on the add-ons. Sand Dollar Soap from our very own island makes deliciously fragrant and natural bath products to help you relax. Try an Essential Oil Bath Melt, which is shaped like a seashell and packed with coconut oil, cocoa butter, vitamin E, and vanilla to soften and nourish your skin. Then, suds up with one of their artisan soap bars, which come in scents like Island Spice, Slow Coast, Ocean Rose, Vanilla Mint, and more. Once you’re sufficiently pruned, towel dry and finish off with some citrus and lavender infused body butter. 
 
Indulge in comfort food:
 
Opening in less than 2 weeks, our onsite Syrens Bistro & Lounge will be the perfect place to hide away while the winds howl. Tuck into a bowl of hot seafood chowder, packed with prawns, fish, bacon and corn, or order up some prawn and crab mac ’n cheese for a comfort classic with a west coast twist. The selection of comfort food is endless! Syrens also features a full bar, so you can warm up from within with your beverage of choice. 
 
So don't fear the rain! Enjoy the storm at Poet’s Cove Resort this spring — with a view to die for once the clouds break and the sun starts shining through. To book your room today, just call 1.888.512.POET or click here
