Amazing

This beach is wonderful. Go at low tide and see tons of tiny crabs and sand dollars. Just be sure to leave the black ones behind (those ones are still alive). Great on a sunny day but still fun when it's rainy.

Great trails, swimming, and salmon in season!

Suitable for all abilities, we took my 88 year old father in law for a lovely walk, yet some of the single track makes for some interesting MTB (Green or maybe “Teal!”) or trail running. Main trails are exceptionally well maintained, and connect upstream

The roast was juicy and tender and with all the trimming it was a wonderfully meal.A consideration to make tender lamb skewers (unless the meat you bought is already though) the secret is in the marinade.You only need to mix a little filtered water with a

For a "by donation" small town museum, this place is amazing. The paleontology exhibits were shockingly good with a little smattering of DIY aesthetic that only added to their charm. Local First Nations and colonial history was well represented throughout

Wayward Distillation House

Wayward Distillation House is True Craft distillery located in the heart of the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island. Balancing tradition with creativity, Wayward is the first distillery in Canada using honey as the base for all of its spirits. With this as a curious starting point, the only obvious direction to take is an unpredictable one. Our signature Unruly Vodka and Unruly Gin are beautiful, hand-crafted examples of what can happen when unruly people meet unruly bees. Couple this with our seasonally changing, ultra-small batch experimental Wayward Order Line and you will truly understand our need to break moulds and blaze trails. Welcome to our wayward life. Welcome to Wayward Distillation House.
