Exploring Qualicum Beach and Parksville ~ In Photos
Qualicum Beach and Parksville are two small cities located on the east coast of beautiful Vancouver Island. Since the two are only about a 5 to 10-minute drive apart, they get lumped together to explore. Our family has been there twice and both times really enjoyed our time there. There is so much to explore! Oh and just to warn you this post is very picture heavy πŸ˜‰
