Family vacations are always a priority, especially in the summer. This past week I was able to take a little time off and head over to Vancouver Island with my family. This is one of our favorite things to do as a family. We spend our time relaxing on the beach in Parksville and taking in the scenery. My wife and Mom love to hit up the local shops to see what treasures they can find and my Dad and I make sure we find the best places for ice cream. There is always one place we make sure we get to, and that is Coombs. Coombs has the cutest little places for coffee and ice cream. You can also peruse the grocery stores, and souvenir shops. Not to mention you get to see the Goats wandering around on the roof of the stores. If you haven’t been it’s a place to check out for sure. It was a wonderful vacation. Now to plan the next one.
