Salt Spring Island

We have arrived at Salt Spring Island, BC and it is magical here. I will attempt to capture it in pictures one of these days, though this island really needs someone like Al from the Bayfield Bunch to really showcase its beauty and all I have is an iPhone... 

Tsawwassen - Long Harbour Ferry 
Mayne Island to the left, Galiano Island to the right.

View as you enter Long Harbour. Docking is just the other side of that little island

Our spot. Once we start the position Jan 1st, we will move to the spot on the left but for now - this is home.

Went to the Tree House Cafe for lunch, stunned I didn't take any pics but I will as the cafe is awesome.





SSI Art Gallery, but also a private joke with our friends Brenda & Phil who are not arriving until Nov.

We are settling in and finding our feet here. Lynn and Milton (current Managers) have been very great in greeting us and we look forward to working with them as we learn the ins and outs of the park. I will have to do a blog about this park, it is quite mystical and I hope to capture that essence as we put our own stamp on it over the next few months.

  4. You made it!! I miss the west coast very very much. If not for our grandchildren and elderly parents, I would have NEVER moved back from Nanaimo to Regina.

    In fact, it is for those reasons we sold our motor home as well.

    I think you will love the peaceful slow pace of island life. Yes, it gets busy in the summer tourist season, but that contributes to the positive vibes because when people are on holidays, they are usually having fun.

    Can hardly wait to see the adventures you have in your new digs!!

    Take care ... TnT
