After a leisurely morning of sitting around, I headed into town to do some errands, mostly last minute things for my trip. Along the way, I stopped and took pictures at all the places I drive past everyday and think "hey I should stop and take pictures there sometime". I did this to share my hometown with you. Granted, it is not the most lovely day of the year, but then again, much of the year is like this so it is probably a good representation.
Here are the pictures from around my house, on the way to town, and in town.
My yard with the fall colors out in full force.
My car and in the distance my drive-way --- A field not far from my house
The bridge 100m from my driveway --- Looking downstream towards my house
The road into town
The road to town --- A farmers field near town
Fields near town --- Corn is all gone
Downtown Courtenay. This is looking down 5th Street towards the bridge below.
The 5th Street bridge
Pretty colors along the river
The totem at the entrance to Lewis Park
Looking out towards Comox and Goose Spit
The beach at the mouth of the river and the estuary beyond
That gives a quick taste of the Comox Valley. Not included in these are the wonderful beaches, the mountains, or the lake, but more a look at what I see every day.
Hope you enjoy.
