Living on Vancouver Island during a Pandemic
Submitted by Sue Tompkins, 460 Realty
Finding things to do during the Covid staycation… Vancouver Island is a perfect place to hunker down during the pandemic. There are so many things to do such as hiking, biking, camping, beach-combing, Sunday drives, fishing, boating, but one of my most favourite things to do involves food.
Every aspect from growing vegetables and fruit in the garden, fishing for salmon, graciously accepting neighbours or friends offer to pick excess fruit from their bumper crops. What do I do with all of this food? I like to preserve and can, I love to bake sweet treats and I love to sample John’s cooking through his excellent culinary skills.
A pandemic is not the most ideal situation that we find ourselves in, but I am thankful for all of the small things in life, that are actually very simple things. We are fortunate to live in this beautiful location and we love helping people transition to the island, who love it as much as we do.
