Where I Live

Hello everybody!

Have you ever gone skiing and then swimming all in the same day? Well Here you can, in my home town, the Comox Valley.

I live in a small town, called the Comox Valley, in B.C Canada. We have lots of nature kind of stuff in the  Comox valley, like beautiful beaches, lakes and forests, that’s one thing I love about Comox. Another one of my favorite things, is how safe it is here, with no big shootings, robbery’s or crazy criminals and things like that. One thing I don’t like about the Comox valley though, is that nothing really interesting ever really happens here, because like I said its a very small town, with only about 14 000 people living here.

If you ever get a chance to come visit here, I totally recommend going up to Mount Washington. Its a great ski hill from the bunny hill to lots of very challenging runs. No matter if your a great skier and are going up for some fun, or your just learning and coming up to try it out, either way it is still super fun! If you are not interested in skiing you can still come up and have a awesome time, with activities like tubing and snow boarding and even snowshoeing. I have not gone skiing for a very long time (since my parents are not that into it anymore) but one thing I remember about Mount Washington, from when I was little was the big ski lifts. I loved going up them, but I always got nervous at the end because I didn’t think I was going to get off in time. but I always did.

I also recommend going to Goose Spit! I know it sounds very weird, but its actually a great beach! When I where younger, and I went to goose spit, I really liked going to a place sort of behind the beach, and it has massive dirt slides that where really fun to slide down. ( although no matter how hard I tried not to, I still got really dirty by the end.) Another one of my favorite things to do there is go up and down these super tall stairs that are like 100 steps high. I know it does not sound so fun, but surprisingly it is. And plus it gives you a lot of exercise. Bonus! I really like the beach part too, because it is actually some what sandy. Although the ocean is a bit rocky, it is still fells good to cool off and splash around.

Lastly, I absolutely love all the forests here. They are all so beautiful. I love looking at and learning about all the great nature that the forest has to offer! I also really enjoy the pine kind of smell there too, it is the kind of smell that gives me a very happy felling inside, for a reason I don’t know why. I also think everything in the woods always looks so magical and beautiful, especially in fall. I guess you could say, all my senses are very excited when it comes to trips to the forest!

Well, Comox Valley is no Disneyland, but it still is not so bad of a place, so if you live close and are looking for a small vacation that is cheap and full of exploring, then maybe consider coming here. Overall Comox Valley is a great place, with great people, and great things to do. Please tell me in the comments a bit about where you live and where you are from.

Goodbye and have a awesome day!

Sincerely, Abbey
