|What a view this must be!|
This is the quirkiest, most interesting island. Lots of fun, interesting people and quite a few artisans selling goods and providing services.
Rising up out of the water, with huge mountains, and multi-million dollar homes, it is quite the spot to be.
|Check out the stairway!|
We visited the town, did some shopping, then had an indulgent lunch beside the marina. Planes would come and go, as well as the odd boat! It was a cool, cloudy day, with a bit of humidity. The heater on the patio was wonderful!
We shopped will we dropped, finding souvenirs and 'Close Eyes' for our respective families.
|Beautiful shrubs, lovely streets|
|"Death before decaf!"|
|I loved his beard!|
He was doing Soduku.
|We climbed the hill to explore some of the shops. |
They have a brochure for all of the artisan workshops
in the town.
|Don't you love this outfit?!|
|Bird houses from weathered wood.|
|Long walk, long pier!|
|Off we went, after we shopped and had dropped!|
|She did it!|
|The sand, with rocks peeking up|
|Fernwood Road Cafe|
|These buildings were part of a spa|
|We drove the perimeter of the island|
|They weren't kidding, either!|
|Farms nestled in and about.|
It must be easy to eat locavore!
The next part of our trip, more farms, and BIG gates. There are many who bike on the island. The ferry signage forbids cleats on the ship!
|Can you see the house?!|
|What a view|
|Typical BC: moss, huge trees, lots of fern|
|They seemed disinclined to ride single file!|
|There were many trucks, and hills. (16% grade)|
|Vesuvious Cafe - last stop before the ferry|
