There’s no place like Chemainus

Glad to be back again where the living is fine

After five years of living in other areas of B.C., I am very happy to be back in Chemainus to reside once again in this unique community.

All the amenities that make Chemainus so special are still intact.

We are a seaside town that does not have the traffic issues with a main highway going through it such as the case for Duncan and Ladysmith.

We can share our history through the beautiful outdoor murals. There is no paid parking and no fast food franchises, except for Subway.

Children and teens will still say hi as I pass them on the sidewalk and horse drawn carriages still carry our welcomed tourists.

Thankfully, we still have a vibrant professional live theatre that provides an important cultural component and we can support great retail outlets such as the new 49th Parallel store and a hardware store that continues to provide excellent service.

Wow, I am so fortunate to be home again in this very special town.

Extra kudos to the hard-working gardening volunteers who keep our public spaces so visually stunning.
