I know I haven't written for awhile, its been crazy busy... we have been learning the ropes here at the park, exploring the island and relaxing. I've still been taking pictures so here is an update. I will better manage my time in future.
While waiting for the ferry to Duncan, I noticed this fairy door in a tree. This is a thing on Salt Spring Island which I didn't know until we got here. I had planned to do a fairy theme here at the park because from the pictures I had seen, it just seemed such a magical enchanted forest. The entire Island is a magical enchanted forest, quite literally. There are hikes on which you can find many fairy doors, gnomes etc.
Fairy door to a magical kingdom
A bit of a breeze on the fairy this day, sea was choppy.
Laundry and shopping complete we stopped in Vesuvius for Fish & Chips at the Seaside Restaurant. This restaurant is right on the water. At the entrance to the ferry dock it is a prime location.
There is a small bar and very friendly service
The Fish was really very good.
A few days later we went to see a movie at the local cinema: Christoper Robin it was quite the change for us and we enjoyed it.
There are palm trees here on the island.

The roads here are very 'English', note the rock wall along the roadside... hmm, english or welsh?
Another day we took a drive to the top of Mount Maxwell
Made it to the top
Victoria is that way somewhere distant
View from the Duncan side of the island
Plenty of farms on the Fulford (South) side of the island
A lot of little islands... I could be Queen after all....
Here are a few more pics from our trip to the top of Mount Maxwell on Salt Spring Island.
