We thought you might appreciate a little bit of information about Nanaimo - what it looks like and some of the things you can do. Let's start with where we live.
Here is a view of Nanaimo looking north east from google earth.
And finally, getting a little closer, here is an overview image of the part of Nanaimo where we live that I took from the air a few years ago - it still looks the same ☺.
We are located above two amazing marine parks (Neck Point and Piper's Lagoon) and beside another park and recreation area (Cottle Lake). They are all great areas for walking. Here are a couple of photos taken at Piper's Lagoon, a 10 minute walk from our house.
Neck point is close to Piper's Lagoon, has great views and lots of wildlife.
Our neighbourhood is all single dwellings. Here are some shots from the front and back of our house.
Downtown Nanaimo is quite nice in the summer and fall. It has a festive harbour and a walkway all along the shore.
