The Saturday market is big and really flourishing. You can meet just about everyone there.
One thing you can ask residents at the public market is where their favorite beach is. They usually enjoy talking about that. The one below I had to promise I wouldn’t mention the name of or give directions to, so I haven’t. It is where locals go; where their children play and their dogs run free.
Irene and Kyle Brown, their kids and dog were enjoying the beach when we arrived. They are from Vancouver but come out to the family home on Pender every summer. Another girl came on her bike from just up the road when we arrived.
