Hmmm…the interesting thing about Salt Spring Island and the Gulf Islands is that there is something for everyone.
A strong artistic community calls forth a like-minded audience response, I think.
There are over 100 writers who call Salt Spring Island home. A publishing company, with several award winning books under their label, also is located on Salt Spring.
There are several painters, fabric artists, sculptors, actors (live theatre is alive & well & living on Salt Spring), musicians (blues, folk, rock, fusion, classical), and there are over 400 people involved in choral presentations…imagine that many people, in a small community, singing!
There is a Buddhist monastery on Salt Spring, plus an Ayervedic based centre. The Island has a reputation as a healing place…zen sitting group, several yoga groups, plus meditation groups offer their individual paths. Alternative medicine opportunities abound, along with mainstream medicine (hospital, seniors for seniors facility, assisted living options, plus extended care unit).
An interesting retirement option then? Yes.
With 3 elementary schools, a middle school, a senior school, plus adult education opportunities, the Island will also work well for young families.
In our post-Internet world, if one inhabits the digital universe, then one can live anywhere.
Summer/seasonal places, of course…this entire area is a recreational paradise. The Southern Gulf Islands & Salt Spring Island are in the heart of the best protected boating waters in the world.
Retirement opportunities to fit all financial comfort zones…call me about some stellar options that will appeal to you.
Arable land for hobby farms, horse properties, vineyards, or orchards…the 10 K diet is also alive & well on these Island beauties!
Family lifestyles are rich experiences, here. A slower and more sustainable living pattern is possible.
A thoughtful, interesting, connected and environmentally aware “who” will feel right at home on Salt Spring Island & the Gulf Islands. Remember, “everyone” is here…a diverse population, meshing ages and lifestyles…with the arts as the background rhythm of the Island experience.
