In between our biking and the rainstorms, we managed to fit in a few side adventures in Comox.
Hunter is all about machines, working vehicles and the various branches of the military. Over the last month we have spent alot of time in the car pointing out and discussing police cars, logging equipment, every construction vehicle imaginable, municipal vehicles, helicopters, bucket trucks etc. etc. etc.
Last year when we flew into Comox for our fall Tofino visit, Hunter quickly spotted all of the military planes that go along with CFB Comox. We learned they had a museum and snuck in a quick trip before we headed home. This was the top thing on his list when he learned we were coming back to Comox so we had to fit it in. Luckily the rain slowed down (as parts are outside) and we found a 2 hour window to venture off to the Comox Air Force Museum.
I think he could have stayed all day! We definitely recommend this for families that have military enthusiasts – you pay by donation and it is run by retirees who are full of information and have all day to chat.
We camped at the Cape Lazo Campground and it was a great find. It was remodelled last winter and their new amenities are amazing – the washrooms are impeccably clean, with marble like tile throughout (showers, countertops) and the laundry is great. Internet is free and strong and there is a large grassy area and kids play set that is great for the under 10 crowd.
