While we were at the Wooden Boat Show at the Maple Bay Marina, we really did encounter many interesting artifacts.  The marina is a true nautical place to visit, and has much more to offer than just boats docked.  Nestled in the Cowichan Valley, you are surrounded by mountains, the ocean and many elements typical […]

One of the best parts of attending the Wooden Boat Festival at the Maple Bay Marina in the Cowichan Valley of BC, Canada is of course… the boats.  For today’s adventure together, we will take a look at a few of the boats that were moored up at the festival this year.  And to say […]

As we continue our adventure together at the Wooden Boat Festival at the Maple Bay Marina, today we take a look at some of the house boats moored at the marina.  This is the third post in our ongoing series from the festival, titled “The Hollow’s Backyard“. During our time at the festival we did […]

Without a doubt, today’s post is going to feature my personal favorite shots from the Wooden Boat Festival at Maple Bay Marina.  This is our second post in the “The Hollow’s Backyard” series showcasing the festival, boats and the marina that hosted the event. Now, even though I may be a Toad with nautical interests, […]

There is definitely no lack of excitement around these parts lately!  We just got back from a long weekend here in Canada, and we had a great one to say the least.  On Sunday we spent the day with one of our dear friends who also happens to be a well-known international artist, Bernadette McCormack.  […]

Yesterday’s post, “The Toad And The Nun“, took a brief look at our heritage site, St. Ann’s Academy.  This beautiful facility was the first learning institution in the city of Victoria, and was accompanied by St. Joseph’s Hospital, right across the street.  Today this hospital is an apartment complex… we’re not sure if it’s a […]

For today’s adventure together, we’re going to take a look at a facility that is one of the original cornerstone buildings for Victoria.  St. Ann’s Academy was one of the first buildings constructed in the area and is now considered a heritage site. St Ann’s Academy is of a typical architecture employed for the design […]

Whenever I think of B&B’s here on the West Coast, for some reason Continental Breakfasts come to mind right away.  Life definitely runs at a slower pace on the island here than in most big cities and the idea of waking up in an old character-filled heritage home and getting into a nice, soft robe […]

With today’s post, we take one final look at the last house we photographed in an area undergoing massive development.  The entire section of housing here is likely on a short fuse, time-wise, and will probably be consumed and demolished to make way for a new and shiny condo/townhouse unit in the near future.  With […]
