The May Long Weekend is with us...called Victoria Day, it commemorates the birthday of Queen Victoria.
This is a special year for Britain & the Commonwealth countries as it celebrates the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth...this marks 60 years on the throne. Lots of events, and members of the Royal Family will be visiting the Commonwealth countries, including coming to Canada.
The Commonwealth countries certainly all began as colonies of Great Britain, at the close of the 19th Century, at the height of the Age of Empire...now, they are a loosely knit federation, involved with trade & commerce among many shared interests.
In Canada, this Long Weekend is also the traditional beginning of the Summer Season, with people opening up their cottages, bringing out the patio furniture, cleaning up after Winter's palette.
On Salt Spring, it's the annual Round Salt Spring Sailing Race, the annual Soccer Tournament, plus the full on Saturday Market in the Park, the galleries & studios are open, and the marinas are welcoming the boaters...that's another kind of "cottage opening"...we are in the best protected boating waters in the world, & Ganges is a destination venue for boaters!
Very talented musicians are entertaining us at live venues around town: Harbour House Hotel, Treehouse Cafe (their nightly live music season has begun!), Moby's, Salt Spring Inn, Raven Street Cafe...enjoy!
Lunch, dinner, coffee/tea times on sunny patios & decks (if an oceanview, then get to watch some leg of the sailing race!): Harbour House Hotel, Seaside Kitchen, Auntie Pesto's, Salt Spring Inn, Rock Salt Cafe, Moby's, Fernwood Cafe, TJ Beans, Cafe Talia, Penny's Pantry, Barb's Bakery....
Lots to see & to do, just for you!
