Roasters is back?

April 14th, 2019 — Roasters coffee shop in Ganges was THE meeting place on Salt Spring Island so when it closed down for renovations almost two years ago it was missed. A few weeks ago a trailer serving Salt Spring Coffee and snacks opened for business at Roasters’ rear door and the barristta said the coffee shop would be reopening soon, possibly in May.

Walking my Husqvarna back home

April 16th, 2019 — Husqvarna motorcycle being walked down the sidewalk of the Lions Gate Bridge. Out of gas, broken down, maybe a flat tire? Been there, done that, except with me it was a Honda.

Channel Ridge

April 16th, 2019 — Fifteen years ago the Channel Ridge housing development on Salt Spring Island was going to be the greatest thing to hit the island. Within a few years it floundered into bankruptcy as the long time residents on the island expected. Just another scam. Today the floor of the onsite office is littered with plans for roads and commercial buildings while the clearcut acres nearby have fireplugs and lot markers sticking up through rock and brush where there were to be roads and houses.

City fences

April 6th, 2019 — Two fences in the city; the one above in the 1100 block of Richards Street and the one below in the 300 block of East 1st Avenue.

Broken bendy bus

April 10th. 2019 — It seems almost every time I go downtown I come across an articulated bus like this one on Richards Street just south of Georgia that has broken down and is being towed away.

Prince of Wales beats Magee

November 4th, 1975 — Prince of Wales in black playing Magee at Quilchena Park in a Vancouver city high school rugby game. Prince of Wales defeated the previously unbeaten Magee 6-4. It’s taken a long time to track down the details of this game as the pictures never ran in the paper, just the story, which is a shame.

Shot with an iPhone

March 31st, 2019 — As hurdles pictures go this isn’t the greatest but it’s still pretty good especially since it was shot with an iPhone which is all I had with me when I rode by during my morning bike ride. It’s a heat of the men’s decathlon hurdles at the UBC Open Track Meet at UBC’s Dhillon oval.
