Following our short jaunt in Naramata, Jenny and I continued our adventures to the lovely island of Salt Spring. We were fortunate to have amazing accommodations at Chateau Craig/Kuipers and we took full advantage of their beautiful home and surrounding outdoors.
There is an endless amount of goodness to get into on the island (especially when you have nothing but blue skies and warm weather) but here are just a few of the fun things we did:
If you’re looking for a great (and authentic) spot to do yoga on Salt Spring, try the Salt Spring Yoga Centre.
We did two great hikes while on the island. The first was Mt Erskine. It’s a must do. There are these adorable little fairy doors that you really can’t help but smile at :).
The next hike we did wasa roundabout approach to Mt Maxwell. Definitely not a tough hike but rewarding views at the top. Not keen to hike? You can actually cheat a bit and drive to the summit too ;).
We were fortunate to connect with Alex while he was on the island so he took me on a little tour of the north loop. All the turns and hilly roads make for fun riding!
The fresh produce and creativity of vendors at the Saturday Market in Ganges makes it a fantastic way to spend a morning…get there early though because it’s busy on a blue bird day!
If you’re on Salt Spring, you have to check out the Treehouse Cafe. What a great ambiance (with a tree growing through it) and even better food and live entertainment! Also, check out Rock Salt in Fulford as well. We also sampled a number of coffee shops to find the best coffee/soy chai lattes :).
It’s impossible to go to Salt Spring and not want to kayak. There is so much to be seen even if you just stick to the shoreline. We had a blast on our little expedition!
