Recently

my family and I visited Salt Spring Island in the Gulf Islands of Canada. It was a magical trip, the weather was gorgeous and everyone got along great. The island is home to many artists and small farms and is known for it's lamb. Luckily, we were there on a saturday and we able to visit the huge farmer's market they have there.

We visited an incredible dairy called Salt Spring Island Cheese Company where they make exquisite goat and sheep's cheese. We also visited a shop that imports french fabric - the people who own the shop live in a house that is modeled after Marie Antoinette's farm house at Versailles. Wine from one of the island's wineries and fresh bread along with the goat cheese made for a perfect picnic lunch.

We hiked around Ruckle Park on the south end that has majestic peaks over looking shallows with purple starfish.

I really needed to get a way for a bit and this trip was perfect for that.
