This is a place we’ve been many times before. It’s a place that changes with the seasons and the light, revealing different facades and character with each visit. It’s a place steeped in history for Vancouver Island, one that today remains a landmark in the Cowichan Valley.
We never cease to be amazed at how a place changes with the seasons. Colors, light and mood are all fleeting as the different hues of the season’s light dance upon the old wooden station. It’s easy to imagine ladies dressed in their finest waiting for the train to take them to the big cities here on Vancouver Island. Cowichan Station was once a stopping point in the mid-island that was really a hub of sorts, a central point that led both north and south. Today it is many things, one of them being a cherished treasure for the community as Cowichan Station strives to hold onto links to the past by maintaining facilities like this. It’s truly a peaceful place to visit in person, one that reveals photo opportunity after photo opportunity.
