Lugging Squash to Ruckle Provincial Park
As a finale to summer in BC, I took my bike onto the ferry to Salt Spring Island. People weren’t kidding about the hills. I stopped at almost every farm stand on the side of the highway and filled my pannier with fresh produce. Each stand had a money box and was self serve.
The struggle was real as I lugged my squash to Ruckle Provincial Park (why did I choose the biggest vegetable possible?!). The park was a bit crowded for my taste but I managed to find the best spot by the water and angled it so that no humans were in sight. A sea otter swam by on its back and a seal hung around my campsite all evening. The gentle waves lulled me to sleep.
