Child beachcombing
"The rain won't stop us from searching for shells on Parksville Beach!!" - Sasha Redmann
“ Not rain - liquid sunshine. ” Stephanie Scott

"Not rain - liquid sunshine. Nothing better than splashing in the tide pools at the beach on a rainy day, the ocean warmer than the air. Refreshing, exhilarating and fun with the added bonus of no crowds :-) Or stay dry & check out Horne Lake Caves." - Stephanie Scott

“ There's something magical about Cathedral Grove in the rain, too. ” Skye Donald

"The Old Country Market & neighbouring shops are good to visit rain or shine. Indoor attractions include Butterfly World & the World Parrot Refuge (now closed permanently), also in Coombs. There's something magical about Cathedral Grove in the rain, too." - Skye Donald
