Barber’s Hole; Just Before Nymph Falls

One of the most beautiful places I’ve been to in the Comox Valley would have to be Barber’s Hole. I don’t recommend taking little ones with you if you don’t have a partner to help you with the hike down. I took a 3-year-old, 9-year-old, and two 11-year-olds. I had a wee bit of a panic attack while climbing down the steep hills with my youngest.

I digress, it was a great experience. The water is refreshing and the insects, creatures, and bugs my little guy found were everywhere.

The older boys found a bunch of clay at the bottom of the lake and took turns diving to grab up clumps. Very exciting stuff!

The water had too many currents for this newcomer to swimming

My daughter didn’t feel comfortable swimming, because there is a little current and she’s still some-what new to solo swimming.
