I am new to the blog and have been graciously invited by Al & Doris Errington to contribute…so contribute I will! The islands hold their memories , hold them close and dear, and there are many stories that need to be shared because of the human values and truths that they portray.
People from all walks of life have found their way here and I am fascinated by the process by which they find us,but they all have a common denominator..the need to be nurtured by nature. We have had firemen from ground zero of the World Trade Center attack with stories that are heart rendering,but also inspire. Detectives from some of the toughest city beats, Doctors without Borders worn thin, engineers whose sole purpose was to cover the world in cement who walked away from it all and works now for Ducks Unlimited, life altering experiences on the lake.
It is these stories that I would like to tell you…it’s all true…for when you take a human being who is vulnerable and add the elements of the worlds largest game preserve, coupled with compassionate the end result is magic….
The level of service is very high here. Professionalism is standard but what is unique is the ability and the opportunities presented to make a connection with our guests and creates a win-win situation in which the guest will return year after year….perennial…as the geese that flock… time after time. They are welcomed back as family and are an important part of the whole.
I am so honoured to be part of the staff at Erringtons Wilderness Islands. I returned after a 5 year hiatus,but once again ,life has put me back on the moss covered trails of islands on Wabatong and am so excited to see what will happen next, what new stories lie in wait for me and those who find themselves here!
