Where I Live

Hello Everybody,

British Columbia, or as we call it: Super Natural British Columbia.

This is where I live, well I live in a town called the Comox Valley that is located in that province. I’ve been living here about my whole life and I’ve enjoyed almost every second of it. We have some of the warmest summers and some of the coldest winters. It’s a beautiful place to live, there are so many forests, beaches and so much more. In the next few paragraphs, I’m going to be telling you 3 of my favourite places in the Comox Valley.

  1. The Comox Valley Turf Field

This is one of my favourite places in the Comox Valley because it’s a big soccer pitch! I do a lot of practices there with my soccer team and our team has played a lot of good games there. Almost every summer I come down to the turf and play soccer with my friends and neighbours. It also wasn’t built to long ago so it’s in really good shape for our games and our community takes good care of it.

2. Barbers Hole

Barbers Hole is a big pool of water with big cliffs to jump off and my friend lives right beside it! Every summer we go to Barbers Hole and jump off the cliffs. It is also fun because you have to hang on to a rope to carry you down to the cliffs and the water is so refreshing and cold in the summertime.There are three cliffs you can jump off, the first one is like 60ft and the second one is 40ft and the third one is like 20ft for younger kids. There is also a rope swing but that’s for more experienced cliff jumpers because you have to know what time to leave the rope.

3.  My Grandparent’s House

To finish it off, my least favourite place in the Comox Valley is my Grandparent’s house. In the summertime, I always go over to my Grandparent’s because they have a big above ground pool! My Grandpa built it himself. Every year our whole family comes over and swims, talks and have a big lunch. And whenever I’m at my grandparents house me and my Grandpa make root-beer floats.
