Ponder the Ruybiat of Omar Kayham...and his "the bird is on the wing" reminder of the fleeting nature of Time.
Summer is short but sweet on the great Pacific Northwest Coast. On Salt Spring? Try a whale watching adventure, a kayak trip to Chocolate Beach, a scooter rental for the island's less busy roads. Contact Yvonne at Salt Spring Adventure Company.
Make time for the studio tour (pick up a map & directions at the Visitors Centre). Meet some of Salt Spring's talented artistic community in their own studios: painting, jewellery, sculpture, carvings, ceramics, pottery, fabric arts, unique gifts...Salt Spring is an authentic artists community.
Catch the live music venues (every night at Treehouse Cafe), regularly at Moby's Pub, also frequently at the Legion. Check it out!
Wine tastings (including award-winning Garry Oak...they do the French terroir concept...their wine is from grapes solely from their vineyard). Craft brewery, cideries, farm gate stands with local organic produce...lucky islanders! Enjoy the amazing restaurants that showcase local farmers: Hastings House, Salt Spring Inn, Auntie Pesto's, Piccolo's, Rock Salt, Treehouse, and....? Share your faves!
Park hiking / walking trails...forest breathing restores one's health. Mt Erskine, Mt Maxwell, Mt Tuam, Channel Ridge...trails to explore. Be here!
Summer is half-way in...catch it, rain or shine.
And your summer highlights are? Share!
