With the island now under water, I think it’s safe to say the drought of 2015 is over.
It’s time to start building home systems to capture and store winter and spring rains for summer use.
Merry Christmas everyone!
Overcast, light showers, grey, fog patches, dark. The shortest day of the year was, as far as I could tell, short on pretty.
And I’m hoping this dull monochrome image portrayed the day well.
Still holding out hope for a glimpse of the rare Christmas full moon…

There’s plenty of ‘off-island’ travel during the pre-holiday season to and from Salt Spring Island. So Salt Springer’s get to spend ample time at BC Ferry terminals taking in the nearby sights. Two ships were loading while I was waiting in line, the Star Kirkenes, registered in Bergen, Norway and the Yunnan, registered in Hong Kong. It’s easy to look these up on the Internet to find out information about the vessels and to track their current locations.

It's my goal to continue providing this service without ads through year nine. Help keep this website going by purchasing one custom print each year.
