Salt Spring Island is somewhere I have always wanted to go to! I don’t really know why – it just sounded like a neat place, with neat people – and it was!
We went with Alice & Jim (Aunt & Uncle) who split their Vancouver Island residency between their downtown condo in Victoria and their vacation condo in Campbell River. We took separate cars since they were leaving Salt Spring from Vesuvius to Croften enroute to Campbell River and we would be returning to Victoria via Fulford to Swartz Bay.
Salt Spring Island is the largest (70 square miles/180 square kilometres), most populated (10,500) and, I think, the most popular of the Southern Gulf Islands.
