Hope died

July 22nd, 2019 — At one time if you had to go anywhere in BC east of the Fraser Valley you had to go through Hope. It was a thriving community filled with 24 hour restaurants and gas stations plus a busy little downtown to serve the locals. Then the Coquihalla Highway opened and Hope died along with lots of small businesses such as the gas station above along Highway 1 at the entrance to the city. Totally unconnected but interesting was the Tesla charging station below, just a few blocks away from the above gas station.

To mow or not to mow

June 16th, 2019 — Lawn mowing on Salt Spring Island is a personal preference. Some like it short, some like it long, like a hay field, more suitable for sheep or horse, as illustrated by these adjacent properties in Vesuvius Bay.
