Beautiful Earth visits Prospect Point Café in Stanley Park

Hello again. We hadn’t planned on bringing you another blog this month but we just had to slip this one in before the new year as we wanted to talk about our little trip to Prospect Point Café in Stanley Park today.
Grant was fortunate enough to win a contest that was being run on the
Prospect Point café’s Facebook page recently, the prize being a lunch for two. Grant being the gentleman that he is chose me to be his lunch date!

We’ve talked before about our positive experiences at Daniel Frankel’s restaurants but after our lunch today we felt compelled to spread the word again on the superb service we received.

After being seated we were greeted by Tawsif, the general manager. He was very pleased to meet with his prizewinners and very excited that it was the guys from Beautiful Earth! He had some very nice things to say about our work and we’re very flattered that he’s been following our progress and checking out our website. Thanks Tawsif!

I’ve never seen a restaurant manager to be so attentive to the customer’s needs. He frequently went from table to table making sure everyone was happy. Both Tawsif and our waitress treated us and the other diners like gold the whole time we were there.

Many other places like to say how much they care for the customer but I struggle to think of any that go the distance and walk the walk the way that Daniel’s staff do. As well as being great restaurants with a really comfortable atmosphere, it’s those fine touches that the Daniel Group pays attention to and makes the whole experience so pleasant for the visitor.

The food was so incredible; I can’t believe we both ate so much! Grant had the Seafood chowder followed by the Grilled Salmon burger and I had my usual favorite the Vegetarian burger. Everything is made from scratch with good quality fresh ingredients. Grant says the wasabi mayo together with the grilled salmon in his burger was a delicious combination. After that we finished off with some extremely tasty chocolate brownie and vanilla ice cream. Check out
Prospect Point Café’s Menu here, they have a nice selection of food, drinks and famous ice cream.

The Seafood Chowder at Prospect Point Café is really Delicious!

We had a fabulous time today. It was great meeting Tawsif and we thoroughly enjoyed our conversations with him. We are both so grateful to everyone there and it will be a delight to return again soon.
If you love a bit of comfort food, a great view and friendly staff we encourage you all to take the trip up to Prospect Point Café and treat yourself; you won’t be disappointed!

Take care and happy New Year!

Merry Christmas from Beautiful Earth

Hello all, as we’re into the Christmas season now we wanted to touch base with you all and let you know how things are going here at Beautiful Earth as we near the end of 2012.

It has truly been a magical year for us both. We have worked extremely hard with many days of long hours to get to the point where we have completed almost all of our filming for Stanley Park: An Urban Wilderness. There have been so many breakthroughs this past year where we have managed to interview people that we pursued for many months and finally got the time we needed with them which gave us so much material, more than we could ever need. They really were some of life’s golden moments.

We also found ourselves on the other side of the camera when we were chosen to feature on a local television show and talk about our film and ourselves; it was a nerve-wracking experience to say the least! It turned out very well though and we are so pleased and grateful that we had the opportunity to share our thoughts with so many people.
We also had an interview at CBC Radio which we loved doing, but so far hasn’t been aired. We’re still hoping it will be so let’s all keep our fingers crossed for that one.

We launched a funding campaign on Indiegogo in the fall and although it wasn’t successful in the way that we hoped we are extremely touched that we had the contributions that we did. Our heartfelt thanks and gratitude go out to you all that were generous enough to donate.

We will be doing so much more in the New Year to secure sponsorship and funding in order to finish this project, which will involve huge leaps of faith on our parts to dive into the unknown this way. But as they say, you can’t learn to swim by standing on the shore! This whole journey feels like that, the courage to take that leap, to see what happens if you try.

We find ourselves at a point now where we still have a great deal of hard work to do to complete what we have started but it’s very exciting too. We have a bright future ahead, with big plans for the company, which will see us expanding into other things; but those plans will be kept under wraps until they become viable.

Thanks as always for reading and we’ll leave you with the best of wishes for a very merry Christmas and a happy new year!
