Cowichan Bay Travel Guide: 1 reviews and 6 photos
Cowichan Bay is on Vancouver Island just north of Victoria. It is a fascinating little coastal community which seems to be peopled with interesting characters. On the water you can see a great mix of boats from houseboats, to fishing boats and everything in between.
The shops are small and interesting and most seemed to have the nautical theme.
As you drive up the hill from the water you come upon vineyards and other kinds of farms. Lovely pastoral scenes which lend a sense of relaxation from the hustle and bustle of our lives.
I visited here for the first time yesterday and I loved it. There are quaint old shops which mostly have a boating theme. We went to an interesting little museum that featured many old nautical things but mostly beautiful sailing ships that someone had painstakingly constructed. They were most interesting and must have taken years of labor and skill to build.
We had coffee in an old building which again carried out the nautical theme. We drank our coffee in an enclosed porch, the sun was shining and it was very comfortable and relaxed. Attached was a shop with just about everything .......boating magazines, books, souvenirs and so on.
It seemed like a place where the locals probably gathered to catch up on the news of the day.
- Pros:Beautiful, interesting and peaceful
- Cons:Can't think of any.
- In a nutshell:a lovely way to spend a morning or afternoon.
