When were visiting Saltspring Island we got to see a display of working boats from the area and this one was in the dock.  Apparently it is the last working steam powered tugboat on the west coast.  It has a very interesting sound and unique whistles.

Don’t Peek

I have always tried to teach my children to be safe.  One of the things that I taught them was no matter how tempting it is to peek through a knot hole in a fence or a building to resist the urge.  You never know when there might be a person standing on the other side waiting to poke their finger in your eye.  Safety first!

Six Dollar Moorage

If you have never visited a “Government Wharf” I would highly recommend it.  I am not sure if they exist anywhere else but I do know there are 4 of them on Saltspring Island.  Every one that I visited had something unique and interesting.  There is a sign at each of the wharfs giving the fees to moor overnight at the wharf and for this size rowboat (I’d estimate around 6 feet) it would cost $6.00 (including taxes).  I’d say that’s a pretty good deal but I don’t know if I would want to spend the night in such a craft.
