Our family has recognized we need to learn more about the natural landscape surrounding us here in Cowichan Bay. While we love hanging out in our backyard and neighborhood, there is something about the coastal forest and beaches that beckons us. Today we explored Mill Bay Nature Park:
A short hike down to the water. After climbing trees, wading, watching seals dance and jump, and exploring the forest, we saddled up for a snack… only I forgot it in the car! No worries, we ate on a picnic blanket near our van.
I would love to explore at least 20 new nature spots this month within a 15 min drive of my house. This area is just too beautiful to stay inside. I think I will use January to tell you about how this challenge is going for our family.
