Welcome to thetisblog.net
Feel free to send us bits & pieces of information and interest, photos to share and notices of upcoming events etc.
After a wonderful 2 years plus of being residents on Thetis Island, we are moving to a new abode on neighbouring Salt Spring Island in September. This sceptred isle, this other Eden, this Demi paradise, this precious stone set in a silver sea, that has served as our home will be sorely missed along with her wonderful residents with whom we have made many true friends. We take with us to Salt Spring many happy memories of all that has happened in our short sojourn. Andy and Gerry's perfectly orchestrated Burns Night, the eclectic evenings for the children of Tanzania, Soups On, Moonrise over Clam Bay, sunset over Pilkey Point, knitting classes, Scottish dancing, Ann & Donna's arguably world class cinnamon buns, the Lawrence Trail, sitting outside Forbes Hall to catch the WiFi, Simone and Peter's talent night for Christmas, prima comedienne Gloria, laureate Michelle, the 'flu vaccination extravaganzas, evocative and sensual dancing from Charlotte and her dynamic entourage, 4am live TV coverage at Chris's, of Liverpool Football Club.......the list is quite frankly endless!
However, we have every intention to continue our association with the island and serve our patients in the future. Our wish is to return on most Wednesdays. Please use our cell number 250 436 0045 to keep in touch as well as the email address email@example.com
