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

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!
Hello Readers and Fellow Bloggers!
My Name is Olivia and I recently turned twelve this October! As you can see on the map above, I live on Vancouver Island. I have a younger sister and two older ones as well as an older brother. I am in grade six and have Ms. Smith as my teacher this year.
I love anything musical! If you are one of my classmates, you know I love to sing. I do not YET know how to play any instruments, but I am very eager to learn! I have participated in my school’s Christmas concert choir for the past two year and am planning to continue.
I also am a dancer. I take an acrobatics dance class once a week. Dance is a place that I challenge myself and work hard, probably the hardest I work all week. It takes a lot of control and skill. I would have never tried it, but my friend pushed me to sign up!
My mom and I love to decorate. In another life my mom says that she would be an interior decorator. Right now, she is a teacher, like my Dad, and lots of other people in my family. This Halloween, we went to the dollar store. Bought about 1 million dollars worth of decorations! Then worked on our Halloween costumes and made our are house a fair bit more spooky, but hopefully you will get to hear more about that later. Any ways, my Mom is amazing at that sort of thing, and I loving doing it with her.
I am so excited to start my blog! Hopefully you guess will stick around and you will get to learn more about me and learn some stuff while doing it! Tell me if you guess just have anything in common or if you have something you LOVE doing!
