Just spent a long weekend on Vancouver Island, most of it hanging out and making jewelry at a little bead shop in Chemainus while my husband played cricket. If you know cricket, you understand why I needed a diversion. If you don't, take my word for it, I needed a diversion. And Chemainus is perfect. The town is small enough to walk everywhere and there is plenty of FREE parking to allow you to do just that. There are a variety of shops and restaurants, as well as entertainment if you plan ahead. People are so friendly. The good weather helped, Labor Day weekend can be iffy, but it was spectacular. Even in the rain, Chemainus would be a fun stop.
