Salt Spring Island Part Two

For Salt Spring Island tourists and locals alike, Morningside 
Organic Bakery Cafe & Bookstore is a well-inhabited hot spot

Known for it's uniquely crafted design, wooden frame, eclectic style, 
well manicured ivy, cultured taste in books, and amazing food and coffee

Entrance into Morningside; Wooden saloon doors

 Smoothies, Raw Food, Superfood, Books, WiFi

 Adorable earthen nature styled sitting and eating area, complete 
with colourful mosaic tabletops and large custom built fireplace

Driving through Salt Spring

We saw acres of farmland complete with chickens 
and sheep, and glorious mountains in the distance

On the way we came across many quaint churches

St. Paul's Roman Catholic Church and Cemetery

Dad and I sitting on the front steps of the church

Some of the graves and tombstones


But on a happier note...

Beautiful views from Ganges Harbour

A few people came by to sit in the sun and read 
the morning newspaper... not a bad place to rest :)

I took a picture of this Home Decor Store just up from the harbour 
because I loved it's nature-inspired mural painted on the building

But back to the dock for a few more photos

The Arbutus Tree, my favourite kind :)

Followed by gorgeous views of the Pacific Ocean

Tomorrow is the final Part 3 of my Salt Spring
 Island Photo Series, and I saved the best for last

Hint: Contains the the biggest, fattest,
 foodgasmic MUFFINS you've ever seen!

You've inspired me to make a trip over to SSI while I'm in Vic with one of my friends - gonna hit up the market and have fun. Love it!

I was actually thinking of visiting BC next summer, and these posts are definitely making me want to go!

Mmm I love zucchini muffins- sugar free berry spelt sounds awfully nice too!

I loved Salt Spring Islands when I visited a few years ago. Such a neat community. I think my favourite part was kayaking in the ocean and seeing seals playing!
