For many years I have heard that Ganges on Salt Spring Island (Gulf Islands) is a great place to visit by boat. Gotta be a bit brief today with my text as we have only been home two days and take off again tomorrow for a five day cruise. But let's see some pictures.
One of the attractions is Mouat's, and old time hardware (and much more store). They have a very respectable marine section, so if you need something you can probably find it there.
The place has a funky vibe which is great.
Now THAT'S a dinghy dock!
Entertainment on the way in to the legendary Saturday farmer's market.
I was a bit nonplussed with the market. The crowd in this space exceeded my comfort level. There was a relatively small amount of fresh food/produce.
The goat cheese stand did however live up to expectation! But you can also buy this at the local well stocked grocery store, Thrifty.
Lovely small organic food store. They even have a bulk section, spices too. I added a bit to our stores.
I didn't count the number of restaurants, but there are quite a few. Maybe like 20. Here an old gas station has been re-purposed as a Mexican place. I thought this table with the people and the signage was a crackup.
A shot from Mahalo's cockpit. The real "find" of this trip, for me, is Madrona Bay. This is right next to Ganges and a beautiful anchorage. You can stay there and just dinghy over to town.
Was a good weekend of exploring new places.
