In early June my trophy husband and I did a quick weekend trip to Parksville BC to visit his grandmother. In case you are not familiar, Parksville is on Vancouver Island, in between Courtenay and Victoria, right on the coast, and it is an amazingly beautiful place. Although it was a quick trip, I brought my camera along, and was able to snap a few pictures. After this trip, I have decided that a week on the island would be just as amazing as a week in the tropics.
This place is wonderful. Its got ocean, great weather, nature, excellent food… what else can you ask for? And to think that there are lucky people in this world that actually get to live here. There is a really cool market close to Parksville called Coombs and its pretty good for a place with goats on the roof – I bought $30.00 worth of candied salmon, and it was worth every penny. And just a short drive into the bushes you can find 2 super cute stores called The House of Leaves and Bamboozle. This place is definitely worth searching for with a lot of clothes, accessories, and treats!
Oh and by the way – flying is the way to go – by the time we landed in Comox, we would have just made it to Calgary. Thank you AirMiles for saving 30 hours of my life.
