We had another wonderful day exploring. There is so much to see and do in this area, we have been staying super busy. Our first stop was in the town of Cedar, named for the thick strands of Western Red Cedar trees growing in the area. Cedar is about ten minutes north of Ladysmith. We stopped here to visit the Yellow Point Cranberry Farm. We were hoping to take a tour, the season doesn’t really start until September, we did get to go into the Cranberry Cottage and shop. Jerry found jalapeno and cranberry jelly that is delicious. I was really surprised at the variety of items in the store. Over 20 varieties of jelly with chutneys, salsas and even blueberry and cranberry bread. We had to leave the money for our purchase in the bowl, they did have a sign letting us know they were out working in the field. I wanted to get some close-up pictures of the cranberries in the field. This is the first time I have visited a cranberry farm, but..they had a very loud dog in the back making sure I didn’t go anywhere near the back fields. :-) I zoomed pictures of as much as I could see. After the cranberry farm, we drove on to see the town of Ladysmith. Ladysmith is situated on the 49th Parallel in the beautiful Cowichan Valley. We passed so many beautiful waterfront homes before visiting the awesome beach and park area and marina. I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story. Check back later for more from Vancouver Island.
