Passing Pedestrians...

Thetis Island pedestrians are doing a great job at wearing bright clothes and walking on the left, facing traffic.

However, some drivers seem not to be aware that when they see a pedestrian coming toward them, the driver must slow down and only pass the pedestrian if it is safe to do so.  

It is not safe to maintain your speed and pull into the oncoming lane and expect the oncoming driver to slow or stop to avoid a head-on collision.  

I have some great dash-cam footage from after Soups On of a driver doing just that; pulling out and around a pedestrian with a small child and a baby stroller expecting the oncoming car in the opposite lane to stop.  Had there been an incident, the driver pulling out into the opposite lane would have been entirely at fault.  But who wants a crash!

GONE: Antique Chair

Classic, diminutive, comfortable antique chair. 

Free to a loving home, needs a bit of trim along the upholstery edge.

Would like it gone this weekend.

Quarterly Delayed

This is just a heads-up that the Quarterly will be coming out a bit later than usual, to allow for a report from the special meeting about the Forbes Hall expansion project.  We hope it can be delivered to the island by next Tuesday evening, so it might make the boxes by next Thursday, later of course if by mail.  If you need the tide tables sooner that that, let me know!  And if the printing doesn't happen when we hope, we might be calling for someone who will be in Victoria later next week...


Thetis Island Marina ~ Fuel Dock Back in Service

Our Fuel dock is back in service.

Gas and Diesel available.

Thank you for your patience during our temporary closure for maintenance.
