To the casual observer Bowen Island may appear like a dull place. However, the locals of this tiny paradise would be able to tell you that Bowen is full of hidden wonders.
All you need to find them is a treasure map.I intend to help you mark your island map with x's and remind you of the wealth of local talent. Today I am going to reveal a delicious, candy-filled hole in the wall hidden behind Miksa. It is appropriately named Candy in the Cove.
This particular x on the map leads you not a pot of gold, but of candy. It may well be the smallest candy store in British Columbia and this tiny nook reflects every child's fantasy. The kids of Bowen often affectionately refer to it as Willy Wonka's closet.This closet is stocked wall to wall with different types of candy.
Candy in the Cove has dozens of different sweets from the past, it has candies from 'toxic wastes' to 'pixie sticks' and even Wonka products.I know that after a hard day at school, I like to stop by for a box of Maltesers before I embark on the journey home.
Wether it gives you a blast from the past or a pirate's treasure, your heart is sure to melt and your sweet tooth is sure to rot.
