Welcome to This is Port McNeill !!

My name is Karen Stewart. I’m a freelance writer, blogger, volunteer and retired b&b owner.  I’ve lived east, west and wayyyyy up north in the high arctic.

Many moves have given me the opportunity to experience an eclectic mix of jobs from law secretary to newspaper columnist.  Substitute teacher to marriage commissioner.  Municipal clerk to magazine sales representative.

I’m in my happy place when I’m reading, writing, crafting, taking pictures & binge watching Netflix.

This is Port McNeill will showcase local business, tourism and occasionally I’ll share bits of what makes up the daily fabric of life in a small town.

Visit me at At Water’s Edge Ventures on Facebook — I share photos of Port McNeill, northern Vancouver Island and the incredible wildlife we see right here !!


If you have an idea for a blog post I’d love to hear from you.

  1. Dear Karen,
    Surprise! Remember me?? This is Nandini, the Indian girl you hosted on an exchange program many moons ago…I was looking to reconnect and found you on google. I am in Lisbon, Portugal currently as the Indian Ambassador…I have such fond memories and would love to get back in touch


    1. Nandini — yes I certainly do remember you. I was sad that an email I sent to you a few years ago came back to me as “undeliverable.” Do you still have my email address? I would love to get back in touch ❤️❤️❤️


  2. Nandini — Yes I do indeed remember you !!! I sent an email a few years ago but it came back “undeliverable.” So good to hear from you. Yes I would love to get in touch. Do you still have my email address?
