BC SHELLFISH & SEAFOOD FESTIVAL

Sometimes you have a weekend that is so good you don’t want it to end; and you wish you could live this way all the time!

At the opening weekend of the BC Shellfish and Seafood Festival, I ate more scrumptious seafood than I have ever eaten in a weekend, learnt more about my regions, seafood production, how to shuck an oyster, spent time in the sun, and enjoyed the company of an amazing group of people including my fellow travel blogger Henry.

It was a jammed packed long weekend exploring parts of Comox Valley(Comox, Courtenay, and Campbell River). I love this part of BC and what better way to show it off then with an Instagram photo tour.

A walk along the Courtney Riverway brought us right into the historic downtown where we dined on blue crab benedict, explored the fascinating Courtenay Museum & Palaeontology Centre before running some errands.

The flight back to Vancouver

I love BC! The view from Vancouver to Comox on @harbourair back in June.

As we flew back on the float plane, we were filled with seafood, sunshine and smiles. I know I need to come back next year. I loved the selection of seafood, tours and events for the BC Shellfish & Seafood Festival. Plus, with my new found skill of being able to shuck oyster I can enjoy BC oysters in my own home with family and friends.
