pender island: Pender Island Events - Canada Day Long Weekend June 27-July1 - 06/27/08 07:22 AM
 It's here -- one of the busiest summer weekends here on Pender. The ferry lineups are long, it's hard to find a parking space down at the Driftwood Centre, and the grocery store will run out of bread by Sunday afternoon. But, all is well...most residents are happy to share Pender's wealth with our summertime visitors. After all, the quiet winter months are not far away, and there will be lots of time for winter walks in the woods with no one else around, and long evenings spent around the woodstove reading and playing cards.
But enough about winter. You're here … (1 comments)

pender island: Quality of Life Good for British Columbians - 02/19/08 03:40 AM
If you are considering relocating to BC from another part of the county or world, here's another good reason to make the move: 
A recent study concludes that a high majority of British Columbians are happy with their quality of life.  According to the Ipsos Reid Study published this month, 92% of British Columbians rate the quality of life in their community as "very good" or "good". 
Those living on Vancouver Island (which includes our beautiful Pender Island!) are most likely to rate their quality of life favourably (95% "very good/good".)

pender island: Events on Pender Island Monday, February 18 to Sunday, February 24 - 02/17/08 08:21 AM

Another one of my random photos from my Pender Island/African Photos page.  Here we have the Pender Island Highlanders performing for the Canada Day celebration.  In the background you will also see our island RCMP officer dressed in full regalia for the occasion.
It is so great to live in a small community like the one here on Pender.  Celebrations like Canada Day take on a whole different meaning when you gather with a group of friends to take some time off and enjoy each others' company -- rather than running off to the mall to get some shopping in on a … (0 comments)

pender island: What Did We Use Before the Age of Plastic? - 01/08/08 05:20 AM
My wife came back from dropping off our recycling at the local station the other day (we live on a small island where there is no garbage or recycling pickup) with a shocked look on her face.  I think because it's the new year, and the station was very busy, as well as it being a traditional time to think about things in a fresh way, she had taken the time to look around her at what everyone else was recycling.
"All of the plastic!" she exclaimed. "It was out of control - and it was almost all food packaging!"
If I think … (6 comments)
