Saturday Fair

This Saturday we have two new people with us.

Cecilia Inness joins us with her creative cards. These cards are one of a kind and never been sold on the island before, so we are delighted that Cecilia said yes. 

Susy is from Peru and not only sells crafts but this week will be selling her amazing decorated cakes.

Check out the daffodil bulbs ready to be planted in October.

Only three more Saturdays left before we close for the year so now is the time to come and see us.

Nearby Fire 

The Municipality of North Cowichan says a quick response stopped a brush fire from threatening nearby houses and the Cowichan Garry Oak Preserve Wednesday night.

Twenty-five firefighters from North Cowichan’s South End Fire Hall, the Maple Bay Fire Hall and the Duncan Fire Hall fought the fire, which was reported at 11:35 p.m. The municipality said the fire was believed to be human-caused and severely dry conditions cause the fire to quickly grow to half an acre. Firefighters battled the blaze for two-and-a-half hours before it was fully extinguished.

“We’re thankful for the very quick call to 911 by a resident,” Mike Dunn, fire chief of the Maple Bay Fire Hall, said in a statement. “That combined with the rapid response by the Fire Halls kept the fire from having devastating results.”

“That combined with the rapid response by the Fire Halls kept the fire from having devastating results.”

There is a campfire ban for the Coastal Fire Centre, with the exception of the Haida Gwaii and the “Fog Zone,” that will remain in place until Oct. 21 or until the public is otherwise notified.

Stray Cat Spotted?

A rather thin, orange and white cat with only a stub of a tail wandered across our deck early this morning.  He or she (but looks male somehow) was definitely just moving through (heading north) but in case someone has lost him, this is just to say he's been seen in this area.
