October pleasures arrive on Salt Spring Island...

Fulford Harbour

October is Fall's signature month.

Sunny crisp weather with inspiring views of mountains and sea, plus rainy storms, and shorter days, with maple and alder trees turning gold, fluttering over fields and is a beautiful season this hiatus between summer and winter, and it is all about Harvest pleasures.

Salt Spring's hiking/walking trails are ready to be explored. Sailing races take place on Sunday afternoons. The Saturday Market is on till end of the month and the Tuesday Farmers Market offers harvest treasures from the island's local farmers.

SSNAP (Salt Spring National Art Prize) is showcased at Mahon Hall, our great restaurants are featuring special menus, Ganges galleries are open with artist presentations, Sip & Savour (an annual event) is at Farmer's Institute, Small Business Week events are featured by Chamber, the Canadian Thanksgiving takes music venues...ArtSpring events...October is a busy month!

Salt Spring was voted 34 out of 50 chosen, in a survey of islands to visit, globally. That's a WOW.

Look forward to meeting you.
