saltspring Island and more

At Saturday Market we picked up an invite to Foxglove Farm on Sunday for 
music, food and farm tour.

Prayer flags hanging at the entrance up a long dirt road.

We had wonder organic pizza from wood fired oven

Wonderful finger picking music

And a guided farm tour by Michael Ableman.  We had enjoyed 
his free samples at the market and I thumbed through his books 
that were available at a table under a tent.    But to listen 
to him speak, show you the where and tell you the why.  
I wish I had bought a book or two.    fieldsofplenty.com
I am having problems with posting and cannot the link link, but it 
is worth the extra effort.

So now I am thinking of canning and pickling and becoming a gardner.  
This won't last long but fun to think about.
Color blocking continues

Monday the ferry from SSI to Victoria to catch the ferry to Vancouver. 
 All was well until the car battery died and
We couldn't get off the ferry

The ice chest drained the battery as we ( I ) played 
with the GPS

3 gals to the rescue.  Got car started, directed us to a repair place in Sidney.
 I wonder what they do when a jump Is not the trick.   We had car looked at, 
then walk around till time for next ferry.

Vancouver and Granville Market - ie: Maiwa Handprints
 ( fabric scraps bought that I really don't need but wanted
And finished the day with ukulele playing with the 
Heritage Grill Ukulele Club.

Native people art work under construction

From Vancouver we drove north.
