|Welcome to the latest series of Super, Neighbours blog posts where we highlight incredible travel destinations in British Columbia!|
We met up on the island by insane fluke after I had posted a photo to Facebook while we were on the ferry with "Galiano bound!" as the caption. Cedar (Michael's wife) quickly commented on my photo asking if we were going there, because they were too, and soon enough we were all walking down a rural road on the island together with our kids. The most insane part of the fluke is that they actually live in Thunder Bay, Ontario right now and arrived the same day we did.
We made our way to one of many "Beach Access" signs that look like the international symbol for ESP.
A quick walk down a trail.
And there's the beach. The tide was super high so it was more of a walk down a "rock" than a "beach" but it was good times.
On the way out we passed some more of these sweet mailboxes I shared an anecdote about in PART 1. Cedar was the one who actually filled me in on that story about population and the addition of more boxes.
We also took a quick drive to the North of the island and stopped at this old government wharf.
The store up top is closed and there weren't any boats moored there so I'm not sure if it's still operational but you could call one of these numbers below and check if you felt so inclined.
Take yer garbage back with you.
And maybe throw a line over the side, or a crab trap, and see what you can bring up. We left empty handed.
Stay tuned for Part 5 which is going to blow your mind with it's awesomeness. Seriously. In the meantime check out BodegaRidge.com.
