Meet your Bowen Island neighbours: Les Meszaros

A few weeks ago we launched our new Q&A “Get to know your Bowen Island neighbours” series with randomly selected Undercurrent subscribers. Next up is Les Meszaros

When did you come to Bowen?

Five years ago – 2016. 

How did you get here?

We’d been looking to relocate from West Van and had looked at several different spots throughout the Gulf Islands and the Sunshine Coast and settled here after we found our lot to build our home on.  

Where do you live on Bowen?

Sunny south Bowen where the tropical breezes blow through the coconut trees.

Fill the ferry lineup gap or don’t fill the gap?

I love that question. It depends. Winter, fill. Summer, relax.

What’s your favourite Bowen fact?

I was unaware that Morgan Quarry was the unofficial mayor of Bowen Island. (Editor’s note: Quarry and Meszaros are long-time friends.)  

What’s a Bowen Islander?

Super friendly, big smiles, loves the outdoors.

What’s your favourite COVID-19 balm or activity?

Planning dinner. 

In terms of COVID activity, we’ve kept the golf course open. (Meszaros is general manager of the golf club.) And so it’s a great place to come out get some exercise, some mental health, reengage with friends that you see at a distance. That’s been fantastic.
