Sun, sand and a yurt

We are pretty big on camping (the tenting kind that is), but this year with a toddler and 7 month old in tow, we decided on a family GLAMPING trip! Vancouver Island has so many great options when it comes to finding a nice beach spot, and of course, we needed dog-friendly accommodations! We didn't have to look long before we found Seaview Game Farm. So we packed up the kids and dog and left Nanaimo for a yurt.

The yurt was nestled right on the beach, which was basically derserted, save for all the sea creatures. Perfect for toddler and adult exploring alike, with tons of little treasures to be found!

Much to my delight, the farm also had these little darling Scottish Highland Cattle. My absolute favourite!

The farm features fresh local vegetables when in season, venison and grass fed beef. They also have goats, alpacas, llamas and a nice little playground for the kids.

All and all we had the most fantastic time here. If you are looking for a little local getaway (and love animals), I'd highly recommend the farm. You are also a stones throw away from Miracle Beach,  a meadery and a whisky distillery! 

So long to the yurt and summer, we will see you again next year.
