Interview with Michael
There are so many wonderful things about living and working in the Cowichan Valley. While there isn’t a small business, activity or trail I don’t love, these are some of my absolute personal favorites.
The Trans Canada Trail - is our favorite - my fiancée Hannah and I are fortunate enough to live just a stone's throw away from the start of the trail so we take advantage of it almost daily!
Maple Mountain - growing up in Maple Bay, I always loved that we were a 5 minute drive from a number of different hiking trails, but Maple Mountain is my favourite. It's steep enough that you get a work out and not too strenuous. As a reward for your efforts, you get a beautiful view of Sansum Narrows at the top.
Tough question! There are so many good establishments in the Cowichan Valley. While I don’t think I have a true cut number 1, I tend to go to The Brew Pub, Red Arrow, The Oak Taphouse, The Lion Rampant, The Shipyard, or Cow Café.
Favourite Breakfast/Brunch Spot
Arbutus Café. If you like Eggs Benedict as much as I do, they have the best in the Cowichan Valley!
Ocean fishing - there is nothing better than heading out onto the water from beautiful Maple Bay and going to try your luck fishing, crabbing, and prawning. My great-grandparents were commercial fishermen out of a tiny place on the west coast of Vancouver Island called Winter Harbour in the early 1900’s and I apparently inherited the fishing gene!
I can’t say enough how fortunate I feel to have been able to grow up and continue to live in the Cowichan Valley. Between the endless activities and the people that call this Valley home, I truly believe it is the perfect place to live and grow.
