Back in the early summer hubby and I escaped on a moto date to Cowichan Bay. It is a quaint little village on the Island. We used to live there on our floathome and regularly ate at the Rock Cod Cafe, the food is delicious and filling.
The Bay is usually packed in the summer and finding parking is an onerous task. We wandered through the village and I was happily snapping pictures to share. Their is an eclectic group of little shops and usually something for everyone. The village is picturesque and quite charming. If you are on the Island it really is a great place to stop and have a wander.
