It’s a Rainy Day in the Neighbourhood
It sure is a rainy day in the Cowichan Valley. In fact it’s been a rainy month. It’s the perfect day to curl up on the couch and do some blogging.
The dampness is chilling me to the bones. Though, I do appreciate that it feels a bit milder today than last week.
Living in the Cowichan Valley and waking up to frost in October is kind of a novelty. But, having done so a few times this month already, I’m reminded that it’s most definitely not one of my favourite ways to start the day.
And, that I’m not looking forward to winter 🥶
Rainy Day Pictures
In spite of the wet rainy days I’ve been taking a ton of pictures. Or rather — come to think of it, maybe it’s actually because of them that I’ve been inspired.
Cloudy skies of dull grey tones contrast the bright reds of the falling foliage perfectly.
Rainy days wash away evidence of dying vegetation while the wetness breathes new life into others that have struggled for a drink.
The greens are vibrant against a dark backdrop. Varieties of grass, trees and plants are reviving after summer’s drought in the Cowichan Valley and other regions of Vancouver Island.
Rainy Saturday Drive to Nanaimo
I’ve been doing most of the driving to Nanaimo lately, so it’s been awhile since I’ve been able to enjoy some passenger seat photography. But, Saturday I finally got to call shotgun!
Here are a few pictures from our rainy day road trip.
Heading out from Duncan BC to Nanaimo on the Trans Canada Highway.

PS- As the saying goes, if you don’t like the weather in BC? Wait 5 minutes… https://ilovecowichan.ca/sunny-day-blogging/
