If you are planning to give chocolate this Easter and want a change from the traditional egg or rabbit, you might consider a delicious Elasmo Chocolate Bar made by Hot Chocolates. Only available here at the museum, it’s a great deal for $4 and very unique!

The gift shop is also carrying a new book written by local author Tim Haley called Her Vision Quest. This hardcover book retails for $22 and would make a wonderful gift.

About Her Vision Quest

When a hike in the woods goes horribly wrong, young Shirley is forced to think on her feet and grow up quickly. While saving her father from a terrible fall, she notices an unusual cave in the distance. She soon finds that she is unable to shake the vision of it in her mind and embarks on a long journey of discovery. Aided by a mystical friend, she stumbles on more than she bargained for in the darkness of the strange cavern.

This is a story of adventure, friendship, and self-discovery firmly rooted in the culture, dramatic landscape, and magic of northern Vancouver Island.
