Have you heard of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada? Well, I live there in a small town called Comox.
Here you could go down to the beach and wake board in our amazing navy blue water. You could also visit one of our massive “rain forests” and see various wildlife such as frogs and bald eagles. Alternatively,you could go to Mount Washington in the summer and go on a hike to the top to see the entire valley! If you go up to Mount Washington in the winter you can ski and snowboard. Our mountain skiing is somewhat easier than a mountain like Whistler.
For you shoppers out there, you could go to downtown Comox and shop for things like books, clothes and I really don’t know much else because I despise most shopping.
The Coast Salish people have lived on the west coast of Vancouver Island for thousands of years. They used canoes to transport goods and people to other villages. They used three kinds of canoes. The Kxwu7lh, Chá7u and the Nexws. The Kxwu7lh was a huge canoe that averaged from 45-60 feet long! They were made from the wood of red cedar trees. The Chá7u were small, streamlined 5-10 person canoes. They were used to intercept enemy canoes. They were also made from red cedar. The last were the Nexws. They were sturdy, thick boats for one or two people. They were used for fishing and personal use. They were mostly made from red cedar but some were made from other trees.
Vancouver Island is a great place to live.
