|I absolutely LOVE fishing! We had gorgeous weather during our time out West, except for the two days we were going to go salmon fishing in Tahsis. We skipped that plan but at least got in a couple days catching trout!|
Mt. Washington is just a short drive from town, so we took advantage of the clear blue skies and sunshine to go and see the views from the mountain top:
One of the things Brian LOVES about Comox are all the deer everywhere – he’s always amazed at how commonplace it is to see them. They’re always walking through neighbourhoods, or in the yards munching on grass and laying down in the shade. Most residents in Comox with flowers and veg gardens have netting around to keep the deer from eating everything. Or, they just plant flowers and shrubs that they know the deer won’t touch.
|After we got the plants in the new bed, my dad put in some stakes & wrapped a couple strings of fishing line on the top and bottom. The deer will feel it with their nose and then they back away from it, leaving all the flowers untouched!|
There are so many deer in Comox that you will see signs like this along the roads:
The deer in Comox are so smart they even know how to use the crosswalks…
Our two weeks away went by so fast and we weren’t able to see everyone that we wanted to, which is impossible to do in such a short time, so we’ll plan on going longer next year. I took tons of photos and I can’t wait to get them in my scrapbook. I recently read an article that stated that this is the most photographed generation of all time, yet in ten years they will have NO pictures. This is due to the fact that photos aren’t being printed inevitably end up being deleted or lost. How sad is that? To read this article, click here. I am so glad that I print my photos and use our “Memories & More” products to preserve and enjoy them.
