Looking for a vacation? The Comox Valley is a magical place to explore and get a good taste of Vancouver Island. There’s lots of places to find, discover, and make long lasting priceless memoirs. When my grandparents come to visit from Alberta one of the first things the notice and mention how amazing it smells. You don’t notice it after you have lived here for a while but to any visitors it smells or dense trees and the ocean. O ya! That’s the other great thing about living her is that it ocean is always so close. Well, why don’t we get into some details about the charming shops, the beautiful oceans, and more.
5th Street Courtenay
(From the Hot Chocolates Website)
5th >>>street. Sound like just a regular street. 4th street, 5th street, and 6th street. But in Courtenay 5th street is filled with unique shops. If I am ever stuck and what to get a friend for Christmas, I can always count on 5th to give me an idea for or find something fantastic. No matter who you are I bet you can find something you like. From beautiful beads from the Shipwreck Bead Shop, or delicious treats from Hot Chocolate Cake Bread, or a great read from the Laughing Oyster Book Store! On one my favorites shops there is the Tea Shop. When you walk in you smell the sweet teas. There are two giant shelf’s filled with tons of different teas. One of the best teas I think is one called walnut chia. I think if smells like walnut cookies and tastes like dessert in a cup. One of my other favorite shops is Hot Chocolates Cake Bread. It’s a café on 5th. It is filled with delicious sourdough breads, different delectable desserts , and gelato that is the summer is so refreshing. There are tons more shops on 5th that I love but these are my 2 favorite. So if you are ever in town and fell like doing some shopping, I totally recommend 5th Street in Courtenay.

Goose Spit is a beach we have hear in Comox. And no it is not called Goose Spit because geese spit everywhere. It is called the Spit because it sticks out from the rest of the island. And I think Goose comes from it kind of looking like a gooses neck from above. So that’s where Goose Spit comes from. There are two sides two goose spit. Each being special and taking in its own way. The first side is rock and in the summer is equipped by fire pits. I have more the a dozen adored captions in my mind of spending night down at the Spit with my family and friend roasting marshmallows, and eating hot dogs and grilled cheese that we got to make ourselves. The second side is sandy and has little sea asparagus. One time I tried eating one and it was kind of salty and gross. This side of Goose Spit looks towards the marina (learn more about it in the next paragraph). You can always see boats and sometimes kayaks floating across the water.
My other favorite part of Goose Spit is when there are storms. One day me and my friend decided to walk down to the Spit when it was pouring out and the wind was roaring and it was such an amazing experience. We climbed up big rocks and stood up looking out towards the ocean. The waves towered. Little water droplets were picked up by the wind and flew into your face and all you can do is lick your lips and taste the salty cold water. And the wind pulls you face into a smile. All you can think about it being there. It is kind of indescribable. All your worries, your stress, and your responsibilities go away and for that moment all you are is a person watching a storm and you realize how lucky you are to be there.
Downtown Comox/The Grind
(Just their logo)
Cute. That’s the word that my Dad says every time we drive through Downtown. And that’s exactly what it is. Cute. Downtown Comox is filled with charming cafés and adorable shops. Something that I love about Downtown is that it is right of the marina. Most of the store have beautiful views to the blue ocean and tall sail boat masts. Though I love all the nosheries and boutique I am going to zoom in on one of them. The Grind. Something I think is really unique about the Grind that I love, is that they spell Comox the traditional way, “Komox”. The common way to spell “Comox” is European, “Komox” is the traditional Aboriginal way. The reason I chose the Komox Grind is because it find it such an awesome place to hang out with friends. Sometimes me and my friend will bike down to the Grind and buy smoothies! The smoothies at the Grind are so yummy. They have a wide selection of coffees, teas, smoothies, lattes. Plus they have a small collection of pastries, savory and sweet! Something for everyone. One of the best smoothies I think is the Curious George. Based of you yes, you guessed it one of all our favorite children T.V. show. Inspired by our fav monkey. The Curious George consists his most loved flavors. While enjoying a thick chocolaty puree, you of taste hints banana-y sweetness. It is really good. So while I enjoy my delicious Curious George I get the awesome opportunity to look are the meberizing views of the ocean’s waves.
If you haven’t noticed I clearly love living hear. It’s small here, but that’s one of the reasons I love it here. I hope I have persuaded you to come visit if you are ever in need of a vacation. So come to Vancouver Island Comox!
P.S. Don’t forget to comment and tell me about where you live!
After each page Cindy turned, the more drawn into her story she was. It was as if vines wrapped around her and pulled her closer and closer each flip of a page. Finally Cindy’s eye lids grew heavy and she drifted of to a deep sleep. Cindy dreamed sweet dreams until she woke up with a start. Vines had begun to sprout from her novel. They had wrapped around her small thin wrists, immobilizing her arms. Although she screamed at the top of her lungs, her words seemed to be swallowed up by the book. It was dead silence to anyone around. The fat green vines, which were approaching her chest quickly, were tight and strong. There was no escaping this creeping plant. Cindy’s mind was racing. Flashes of her fondest memories skimmed through her mind. She pretended to go to sleep, for the last time. With what she thought to be her last breath, the vines had simply disappeared. Cindy gasped. She breathed easy for the first in what she thought was forever. There was no more time to be happy. She stumbled to her feet, grabbed the book and launched out the widow with a grunt. She collapsed back on to her bed because she was exhausted. Exhausted in every way. Her mind, her lungs, her body. As tired as she was there was no way she was going to go back to sleep. In the back off her mind she heard the librarian’s mumbled words. “Beware. Beware of the book.”

I recently just posted a Christmas post on my blog, but I am obsessed with the this season so I wanted to write another one! So today I am going to write about something a little bit different. How many ways could you think of using a Christmas tree? Here are mine!
- Are you ever in desperate need of a hair brush. Well it’s Christmas time so you could just ask for a new one….. Or you just go up to your cut of a nice big furry piece of your green healthy tree! Just go ahead and brush away!
- Do you have the largest most biggest cotton candy maker but you don’t have any sticks large enough to put it on. Well just grab a average sized Christmas tree and go ahead and make the most huge cotton candy stick ever!
- Make Christmas tree ornaments out of your Christmas tree. No need to go out and buy ornaments but just make your own! All you have to do is cut of a couple little pieces and tie some string around them and there you go! 2 in 1. Buy one Christmas tree and still have decorations for it.
So what did you think of my 3 ways to use a Christmas tree. None of these are very serious, but I thought it was kind of funny. Don’t forgot to comment and tell me your creative ways to use a Christmas tree.
I hope that this post changes your mind about homelessness. Did you know that there are approximately 100 million homeless people across the world. I think that that number is much to high. One really important thing I think everyone should know if, a homeless person could be anyone. We watch a video in class showing all this homeless people that were holding a sigh telling part of their story. For some, its because of expensive medical bills, for others, its escaping bad situation and losing everything. The important thing to know is that this could be me or you.
Helping the homeless doesn’t always mean you have to give money, even though that is a kind gesture. Helping the homeless can be showing a simple act of kindness. Give a smile, say hello, wave. All these things show egnoligement that you notice them. That they aren’t forgotten.
There’s of a lot of homeless people who aren’t even on the streets. A lot are in shelters, or living in a unstable living environment. This means there are a lot of homeless people who are hidden. That you don’t and can’t notice. I thought about this a lot actually. I think that this is one of the reasons that many people aren’t aware of homelessness and how it effects so many people. There is this probably every where. in Courtney, Victoria, and even in Comox. When I first learn this I was really surprised because I had never seen anyone homeless in Comox, or at-least not that I knew of. Homelessness effect more people then just people who are homeless. This is our problem, the hole community and us and the government should be trying to support people less fortunate and get people in to safe, healthier living environments.
Remember that one simple act of kindness can change someone’s life. Saying hi to a less fortunate person is something so simple but sends such a big message. It says “I notice you, you are a person.” Be a change maker, say hello, do a simple act of kindness.

This piece of writing is actually a part-two of a post on a fellow blogger’s blog. She asked people to post their version of part two in the comments so did. I end up being really proud of the piece so I wanted to post it. If you want to check out part one it is called Mysterious Murder?!
“Go faster!” Summer screamed to Katy who was driving the van. Brittney was in the back seat, no seat belt, empty looking, in shock of what had just happened…..
After the gunshot at 1:00 pm they looked around trying to see where the sound came from. When Brittney met the eyes of the killer, she looked at the ground. There lay the waiter that had just served them their lunch. He was on the ground, still, pale, eyes wide open but lifeless.
Brittney looked back to the killer. She starred straight into his grey eyes. Katy and Summer looked behind them to see what Brittney was looking at and they saw him as well. Katy “Run.”
Katy and Summer immediately got up and bolted towards the parking lot. Brittney was frozen, still starring into the man’s cold eyes. Summer lunged for Brittney’s arm. She tugged it hard but she didn’t budge. Then, adrenaline rushing through Summer, picked Brittney up as best as she could and headed off as fast as she could to follow Katy.
Katy looked behind her to see that the killer nor the body was there any more. But she was scared to stop, so she kept going. They got to the van, only to figure out it was locked. Summer picked up a rock and smashed it through the window. The vehicle was so old that the alarm was broken so it was still silent through out the parking lot.
Summer grabbed Brittney from the ground and tossed her in the back seat. She and Katy climbed into the front and started to drive.
Katy started to drive as fast was she could. Forgot the speed limit existed. Summer looked behind Katy. And saw Brittney sitting there. “Brittney?” Softly trying to get her attention. Nothing. “Brittney.” She said louder at more serious, but inside with concern. Still nothing. “Brittney! Are hurt? What is happening right now?” She said even louder with concern and slight frustration.
“The killer, it was my brother.”
7 years ago, when Brittney was 10, her brother was killed in a freak accident. Her older brother Sam who was 19, was on a commercial fishing boat and fell over board. His best friend was their and tried to pull him back on board couldn’t manage. He had drowned.

Hey guys, I wrote this post along time ago, but I just published. So keep in mind that some of the information is from a couple weeks ago.
I first wanted to write this post because I am on the girls Volley Ball team at my school and have been log post on Volley Ball by Gabi.
I signed up for the Volley Ball team in mid October. I have really been loving it. I love how all my teammates are so supportive. Last game I had to serve a couple times and I am NOT the best at that, but everyone was cheering one another on. There are a few girls that have a lot more experience than I do and a lot more than a lot of other girls on the team. They are always encouraging, giving tips, making jokes, and making sure the vibe of “Don’t sweat it” is always in place.
One of the other things that is great about our team is the different skill sets we have. Not everyone is great at the same thing, which really is helpful. We all get equal opportunities to be playing, and I find that very important. We have a relatively small team so you aren’t on the bench for very long and when you’re, cheering your team on.
Thanks for reading! I probably will write another post on Volley Ball in the near future, more about the skills. I hope the best for the team and am sorry I can’t be there this week! Have a great day!
“It doesn’t count if I eat the cake while I am running.”
That’s one of Liza’s favorite lines to use in her videos. Liza Koshy is a super humorous, creative, enthusiastic, and confident YouTuber. She has over 10 million subscribers. Liza is always positive and can always make you laugh. She perserveres through hate and disbelief and keeps doing what she loves.
Liza Koshy is unquestionably enthusiastic about what she does. She posts every week and comes up with original content. She makes lots of jokes and puns, and edits in sound effects to make her videos entertaining. She makes the best out of bad situations and can add humor to anything.
From the way she walks to the way she talks, Liza is certainly confident. In several of her videos, she has gone to stores and made puns about names of brands and other merchandise. I know that a lot of people including me would have a hard time going somewhere public to make videos. Liza always has a vibe about her that is confident. If someone were to ask her to go in a cartwheel in IKEA she would totally do it. Even if no one asked, she probably still would. She has as well done a video turning hate comments in to compliments. Even posting a video online for everyone to see and judge takes a lot of courage and confidence.
Creativity. Liza is so creative! Making up original content is extremely hard. One thing that I always think is amazing is her editing. For me it is really hard to take little short videos of things and at the end putting them all in order. When she wants to add sounds effects she has to have the right timing when she is taking the actual video. The whole thing takes lots of creativity and planning.
Enthusiasm. Confidence. Creativity. Try to be all these things. Be enthusiastic about what you love and do what you love to do. Be confident about what you love. And be creative, take something that you love doing and make it your own. It’s great to have all the previous skills in life. They will help you do better in school and achieve your dreams. Hope you take something away from this post today! Thanks for reading.
Have a great day!
