Saltspring Island

IMG_7846We recently took an extended weekend to explore Saltspring Island. It is the largest of the Gulf Islands, a group of islands just across the US-Canadian border. Like the neighboring San Juan islands in US waters, it combines natural beauty, quaint little towns, and an eclectic mix of inhabitants. A particular claim to fame is the local currency, designed to support the local economy and community project.

We left our car on the mainland and took our bikes across on the ferry. The island is just 9 by 17 miles, so bikes are a great way to get around, even though the hilly terrain can make it challenging at times.

Here’s a selection of photos from our visit.
