Union Bay on Vancouver Island,
British Columbia, Canada
is situated in the Comox Valley.
She is a small oceanside community
founded in 1887 to support the
coal trade from the Union
The Union Bay Historical Society
was formed in 1989 to
preserve the historical buildings, including
the jailhouse and post office.
She has a lovely old town feel
to her, relaxed and laid back.
Friendly smiles and waves greet
you from the residents, who are
understandably proud of
her unique heritage.
I can see why artisans are
drawn to this area. The
whole place has a special
spiritual quality, something that
is impossible to describe.
From the cries of eagles looking for
their afternoon lunch over the gentle
slap of ocean waves against the shore,
to the merry laughter of her happy
residents, she is truly an
inspiring place to be.
