It is not far from BNB walking to Downtown, however, we spend doubel or maybe triple times as we are attracted by the hourse, flowers and people. The lady in red at picture below is Suzy.


No single house is the same as the others 房屋颜色形状各异

No any high rises, the highest building which the rental apartment shown above.  没有高楼,这栋出租公寓算最高了。

The dead tree roots are carved into art works laying along the roads or the houses gates. 枯死的树根雕刻成各种艺术品,置于路边或房子的前院

Below Info from Wickpedia


Comox is a town of about 15,000 people on the southern coast of the Comox Peninsula in the Georgia Strait on the eastern coast of Vancouver Island, British Columbia. The warm dry summers, mild winters, fertile soil and abundant sea life attracted First Nations thousands of years ago, who called the area kw'umuxws (Kwak'wala, the adopted language of the K'omoks, for plentiful). When the area was opened for settlement in the mid-19th century, it quickly attracted farmers, a lumber industry and a fishing industry. For over fifty years, the village remained isolated from the outside world other than by ship until roads and a railway were built into the area during the First World War. The installation of an air force base near the village during the Second World War brought new prosperity to the area, and in recent years, Comox has become a popular tourist attraction due to its good fishing, local wildlife, year-round golf and proximity to the Mount Washington ski area, the Forbidden Plateau, and Strathcona Provincial Park. The town is also home to a Royal Canadian Air Force base CFB Comox, an airport for military and commercial airline use and the Sea Cadet training facility HMCS Quadra. The mild climate has attracted many retirees to the area in the 21st century, resulting in a high rate of growth and a sharp increase in the median age of residents.


Comox town is in the Comox Valley, along with several other communities, including Courtenay, Cumberland, and the unincorporated hamlets of Royston, Union Bay, Fanny Bay, Black Creek and Merville. The nearby Comox Glacier is visible from many parts of the town and is the area's signature landmark.




科莫克斯是位于不列颠哥伦比亚省温哥华岛东海岸乔治亚海峡科莫克斯半岛南部海岸的一个约15,000人的小镇。温暖干燥的夏季,温和的冬季,肥沃的土壤和丰富的海洋生物吸引了成千上万年前的原住民。19世纪中期开放定居,迅速吸引了农民,木材工业和渔业。五十多年来,该村一直与外界隔绝,唯一交通是乘船,直到第一次世界大战期间道路和铁路建成该地区。在第二次世界大战期间在村庄附近安装了一个空军基地,为该地区带来了新的繁荣,近年来,由于捕鱼业,当地野生动植物,全年高尔夫球场,科莫克斯已成为一个受欢迎的旅游景点。该镇还拥有加拿大皇家空军基地CFB Comox,一个军事和商业航空公司使用的机场以及Sea Cadet训练设施HMCS Quadra。在21世纪,温和的气候吸引了许多退休人员到该地区,导致高增长率和居民中位数年龄的急剧增加。


科莫克斯镇位于科莫克斯山谷,还有其他几个社区,包括科特尼,坎伯兰和罗伊斯顿,联合湾,范尼湾,黑溪和梅尔维尔等小村庄。附近的Comox Glacier冰川从镇上的许多地方都可以看到,是该地区的标志性地标。
