Friends, Ferries and a Job Opening

Yesterday was laundry day so off to Duncan we went. I messaged some fellow bloggers who live in the area to say we were coming in, if they were available for a coffee. Unfortunately they were not able to met us on such short notice but we have connected now and will get together sometime soon.

The last time we went across to Duncan I found out there is a 'frequent user' card which gives you something like 40% off the ferry crossing fee. This fee is also only 1 direction, you do not pay to get off SSI (Salt Spring Island) but only pay to get back on.

We are also working on finding an RMT for Brad, he has not had a massage in a month and its a huge problem when that happens. Unfortunately he requires a special kind of RMT and they are difficult to find out here. The ones on Salt Spring Island are booked months in advance so it looks like he will have to go to Vancouver Island for his once weekly massages.

We had a call the other day from Brenda & Phil, unfortunately they have a family situation which requires their immediate attention and they will not be able to join us on Salt Spring Island right now. So, that leaves open their position as co-hosts here at the campground. If any readers are interested
they can let me know.

This position is best suited to an older couple with a Pension who just want something to do 2 or 3 days a week, it is a paid position but winter is obviously slow, though we do hope to increase that somewhat next winter.


  1. Keep enjoying you time there, do love it there on the island .

  2. The pictures that you've shown are beautiful and appealing. That could be something to consider in the future but not now.
    Be Safe and Enjoy!

    It's about time.
