Mill Bay is centrally located for touring the local wineries, cidery and tea farm, which was our focus with our grown-up kids. Great dinners at Unsworth winery and Merridale cidery. And for taking in the idyllic rural landscape. The people at each winery can tell you why Cowichan wines are good; I particularly enjoy listening to Xavier, owner at Cherry Point, a great raconteur.
Mill bay itself was not interesting, but there were so many interesting places to see and things to do within a short drive in all directions. It was an ideal home base for exploring the southern end of Vancouver Island.
The best B@B near Victoria and Butchardt Gardens. The seals were happy to see us each morning. The views of the water and bald eagles added extra charm to an already great view. Great restaurant near by, too. A very lovely place.
