Cowichan, B.C. - A Beautiful Little Community

Cowichan BayRecently, we traveled over to Vancouver Island, to visit my daughter.  We decided to stay over at a little community near the school, called Cowichan Bay.  This is such a charming place, very west coast, and dare I say, "granola". 

How would you like to wake up to this view every morning?  This was the view from our hotel room.  Stunning.  In the morning, we wandered down to the local bakery and cheese shop.  It was fun to see all the funky, artsy stores, and to smell the wonderful, freshly brewed coffee, and taste the still warm, home made breads. 

If you're ever driving down Vancouver Island, don't forget to stop in at Cowichan,
located half way between Nanaimo and Victoria.

I love the driftwood banister on these steps.

Sally, I'm sure I've been there! It looks so familiar. Dave and I went tenting out around the coast one year for vacation and stopped in all the little towns. It was marvelous! Glad you got to go visit your daughter!

That looks like a lovely place Sally. There's something about fishing boats in the harbour that makes it all that much more picturesque.

Peg - You probably were here, it's near the Yellow Point Lodge etc.  Such a pretty area.  It was so great to see my daughter again - she attends boarding school on the Island, so I really miss her.

Malcolm - It seemed like the vessels were real working fishing boats, too.  Very cool.  So pretty, and the bakery was to die for!

Valerie - My mum knitted me a Cowichan sweater when they were all the rage.  They came back in style again when the Olympics were on.
