Where I Live

Hi Readers,

My favorite thing is traveling I love going to new places and seeing the hot sandy beaches or the cold mountain tops but my favorite place in the world is the Comox Valley it has sandy beaches, cold mountain tops, big parks, great weather, and more I love where I live.

 

The Comox Valley  is located on Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. My favorite place in the Valley is Mt Washington,

P3090012If you have read some of my other posts like the all about me, or my skiing post then you should know how much I love skiing. I also really like Beino Gelato its a really cute gelato shop in downtown Comox. you can never get board in Comox there is so much to do. I also really like going to the skating rank,swimming pool, bike trails and more there is so much to do.

There are three towns in the Comox Valley theirs Cumberland, Courtney, and Comox. In Cumberland there are some really awesome bike trails and cool little shops, in Courtney there are lots of shops and fun things to do, in Comox there are lots of beaches and harbors that are really fun to go paddle boarding in.

Mt Washington is located just outside of Courtney there is not only skiing and snowboarding but cross country skiing, tubing, snow shoeing, and in the summer time biking and hiking. In the winter we don’t get much snow but on the hill we get lots we hold one of the top snow fall records in Canada, in the summer its really hot so most of the beaches and pools are packed. In the summer we also have lots of music festivals and fairs including the Filberg Festival, Nadical Days, Music Fest, and more.

Overall I think the Comox Valley is a really fun but also quite place to live there are lots of fun stuff and nice and calm stuff to do in the Valley, I am so lucky to live in a great place like Comox. I hope you enjoyed reading.~ Brooke

Surfing!

Hey Readers!,

Today I am going to talk about one of my favorite sport of all time(besides skiing), Surfing, Surfing is a sport that you can do for fun and for competition(like skiing). you can do it summer or winter depending on the waves because EVERYTHING depends on the waves. But if you are paddle boarding witch I think Counts as surfing, I guess?… Anyways but if you are paddle boarding you don’t need wave! Paddle boarding is where you are standing up on a slightly larger surf board witch you can still use to surf! If you don’t know how to paddle board you paddle… on a board… so if you are thinking that their is only one size paddle board no there is lots of different ones! it all depends on you. Anyways lets get back to surfing. you cant surf in the middle of the ocean with some waves cause how are you going to stop? that’s why you surf near a beach. if you are at a beach with lots of waves then the further out you go the more/bigger the waves! but don’t hurt yourself, they are very dangerous but also very fun!

If you have read my all about me page ( and if you haven’t you should go check that out ) you would already know that skiing is my favorite  sport! I do downhill ski racing and it is so much fun. If you don’t know what ski racing is there is 2 kinds of racing.

1. Slalom this is the most common type if there was in slalom you have special skis that are made for tight turns the gates are drilled in close together and it looks like this.

The Soldier in the Mud

I see the man,

cold, sad, miserable

but hopeful to see his family once more.

I see his family waiting for a good letter

not a bad one.

I see the trees that have fallen in the back.

Where is he from?    

Where are his friends?

I see the sadness of the soldiers who have passed.

I see families waiting to see their loved ones.

What are your questions about the ones you can’t see?

What do you see?

Sushi!

Hello readers!
If you have read the title of this post you should know that this post is about sushi! My all time favorite food. Please enjoy!

Sushi usually consists of some sort of fish or seafood with rice. Some people add cucumber, avocado, beans or green onion. Most sushi contains raw fish, rice and seaweed. Some alternatives are cooked fish or vegetarian. My favorite varieties of sushi are tuna tataki, salmon nigiri, and negitoro cone. if you don’t know what a negitoro cone is, it is tuna with green onion in it. Japanese families eat sushi with chop sticks or with there hands. Sushi comes in all different shapes and sizes. Sometimes people use soy sauce and/or wasabii to put on their sushi.

  1. Number 1. First, you take all your favorite candy wrappers, then take something gross like garlic or part of a mushroom and dip it in chocolate then let it dry.  Put the candy in the  wrapper packed, take a blow dryer and seal the package then give it to a friend and watch their there reaction!
  2. Number 2. This one is very simple, You take all your Halloween candy wrappers and switch them it with your brother/sister’s candy. wait until they notice then give it back before they get really mad!
  3. Number 3. This one is for the people who will not be trick or treating that are willing to stay outside. First, bury yourself in  leaves or something that makes scene not anything like blankets or pillows plus they would get dirty outside but you have to  bury yourself somewhere  the  trick-or-treaters will walk past.   Then you just have to jump out and scare them.

Cats or Dogs?

Which do you purr-fur! Cats or Dogs? Let’s look and see…

Cats

1. They have very dangerous claws!
2. They don’t like people!
3. They shed everywhere!
4. There super needy!
5. They’re evil, very evil!

cats, but its true that a lot of people don’t like cats
including me.
