Canadian Life Style

Vancouver Island is Changing

I VISITED THE HOME OF A COUPLE I HAD MET PREVIOUSLY AT BOONDOCKS, A LOCAL SIDNEY BAR. THEY LIVE IN DEEP COVE, A COMMUNITY WITH EXPENSIVE HOMES AND ESTATES. THEIR PROPERTY IS QUITE LARGE WITH BEAUTIFUL FLOWER GARDEN AREAS, LONG PATCHES OF GRASS AND A POND (THEY CALL IT A LAKE) AND MANY FRUIT AND NUT TREES EVEN SOME REDWOODS. THEIR HOME HAS BEEN HIDDEN IN A FOREST. BUT NOW A DEVELOPER BOUGHT THE PROPERTY NEXT DOOR AND THE TREES THAT WERE THE FOREST HAVE BEEN CUT DOWN AND THREE HOMES ARE BEING BUILT NEXT TO THEM. IT CHANGES THE FEEL OF THEIR PRIVATE OASIS.

BOONDOCKS THE BAR WHERE WE MET CLOSED THEIR DOORS FOR THE LAST TIME TODAY. A DEVELOPER BOUGHT IT AND IS GOING TO BUILD A HIGH RISE THERE. THE SAME IS TRUE FOR THE GAS STATION ACROSS THE STREET…SOLD AND A HIGH RISE TO GO UP. SIDNEY IS NO LONGER A LITTLE SECRET … IT’S BEEN DISCOVERED AND VANCOUVER ISLAND WITH THE MILDEST CLIMATE IN CANADA IS ATTRACTING MANY NEW PEOPLE TO COME AND LIVE.  I FEEL FOR THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE LIVED HERE AND LOVED BEING HERE FOR SO LONG. I ALSO LOVE IT HERE AND UNDERSTAND THE PEOPLE MOVING HERE.

VANCOUVER ISLAND IS CHANGING ..HOPEFULLY THE CHANGE WILL BE MANAGED SO IT REMAINS A WONDERFUL PLACE TO BE.
