Canada Day Weekend Out and About Having Fun in the Cowichan Valley

We had fun exploring Cowichan during Canada Day Weekend 2019

What better way to spend Canada Day weekend than exploring Cowichan, enjoying ice cream and listening to live music in the park? This blog post is going to be light on words but chock full of pictures and videos.

What did you do this Canada Day weekend?

Here’s just some of what we did out and about in the iLoveCowichan mobile. Speaking of our car, stay tuned for some exciting news coming up soon.

June 28th marked the kick off for the 39 Days of July in Downtown Duncan. It started off a wee bit rainy, but full on sunshine quickly followed for the rest of the Canada Day weekend.

Here are some more clips from Canada Day Weekend at the 39 Days of July 2019

Though the week ended with a bit of much-needed rain, the weekend turned out to be perfect sunshiney summer weather and so in search of some ice cream we went…twice!

We’d heard rumors of a sinfully delicious chocolate chip ice cream sandwich being served out at the Old Farm Market Gift Shop and so we headed out in search of our sweet treasure. Which we found! And, bonus! It was being served up by one of our favorite smilers Mariah.

Thank you Mariah for always making our day with that super smile of yours! Oh, and the ice cream sandwiches? Let’s just let the pictures speak for themselves.

A great big thank you to the Old Farm Market for supporting other Vancouver Island businesses like Harlequin Nature Graphics & Skookum Prints.

We headed down to the river so that some of us could gather rocks for art and take a quick dip and so that I could take a bunch of pictures and videos. Thanks, Robert for being the one who ended up wading in for the perfect soothing videos!

I’m glad it was a warm weekend but after spending some time down at the Cowichan River, I realized just how low it really is and hope we get some more rain soon. It looks calm because the water level is low, but please don’t ever underestimate the strength of the current.

Thanks for stopping by! Keep an eye out for more 39 Days of July 2019 highlights. As always, I’m asking you to pretty please shop locally owned businesses. Support your community, your neighbours and your friends #shopcowichan.
