Vancouver Island - 2014

My family and I spent a week and a bit on Vancouver Island together before I started my first year at Univeristy (yikes!), and with a little fact about myself being that I love harbours and cold beaches, it was no doubt this was a perfect holiday for me. For me harbours hold such a majestic beauty; boats travelling out to see, to fish, to explore, ect; I'm in love with the audacity of it all and I could easily sit in a harbour for hours watching the world go by. 

We stayed in Parksville, it's a small retirement town on the island, great for family vacations. We stayed near a little bay, and right around lunch the tide would stretch way out of the harbour and we were able to walk along the ocean floor, there were often little tide pools with sand dollars, crabs and other sea life forms in them, it was so beautiful to see it all.

I generally tried to keep my outfits quite nautical, as we were staying my the sea, and I think I did a pretty good job of it, wearing mainly blue, white and red. I love dressing for occasions and for me this was the best excuse! I hope you can get some inspiration from this and I hope I have encouraged you to visit Vancouver Island, one of my favourite places in the world!
