    Held on a weekend in the middle of September, the Fall fair is a great outing. The best entertainment is all the local color. Produce and animal displays such as vegetables, eggs, pigs chickens are delightful. The talks by local experts on such things as poultry raising, pickling, etc are a hoot. The fair is like stepping back in time 50 years, and the wonderful thing is that it is all genuine. It is what they do on Salt Spring.

    The Tsawout Reserve has the most beautiful beach on Salt Spring Island. An additional beautiful thing is the sigh welcoming visitors. While almost ALL of the seafront on Sal Spring Island is provately owned, preventing public access, this beautiful piece of land, owned by people who have the most reason to resent visitors on their tiny piece of remaining land, have a very welcoming message. It is a short stroll to the first beach. Please take time to consider the generosity of the native people who have made it available.

    Tree House Cafe is great, everyone knows about it, and you can't miss it in the middle of town next to Mouat's. The thing which makes this place special is the live music in the evenings. Excellent choice of entertainers.

    This is a quirky wee eatery. It is mostly built from bits and pieces of demolition material, but it is arty, not scruffy. The garden is lovely and the food is great. Not a big selection, but it is yummy. In keeping with the arty feel there is a Hundertwasser-type toilet. It is a composting toilet with straw and is more stylish and cleaner than the "real" Hundertwasser toilets in Vienna and New Zealand I have been in.

    If you are spending only a short time in Ganges, you probably won't see Barb's Bistro. It is tucked away. Hunt it out. It will be crowded with those in the know, especially at breakfast time. The food is great and the staff are too.

    Stay a long time

    We stayed three weeks on Salt Spring Island, and it wasn't long enough. There are no tourist "activities" unless you want to hire a bike. The island is perfect for strolling around, visiting artists' studios, walking, hiking, sleeping. Don't aim to do anything, just soak up the life of the island.
