Compost Day

The RDN gets a small amount of our kitchen waste but most goes into our own compost bin. They do get all of our recyclables but I hadn't taken that load down to the street yet when I snapped this pic.

Year Four

Today begins the fourth year of daily photos here at GDP and this snap of Judith and Patrick nicely sums up my happy feelings about this beautiful little island and the people who inhabit it. Lots of smiles all round.

Fishnets and Gumboots

Today is the three year anniversary of Gabriola Daily Photo so if you're on the island, please join me this evening at The Roxy for my annual slideshow. I'll project all of the past year's images and then, if folks are into it, I'll show the first two years as well. The soundtrack will be local instrumental music and admission is free. Donations are welcome and all proceeds will go to benefit People for a Healthy Community (PHC). Hope to see you there.

Many Hands

Robbie and Mary are building a boat. The hull is 40' long and needed to be flipped over for final assembly. So they called out a crew of friends and neighbours and in the space of about 90 seconds, she was upright and ready to finish. Amazing!
