File under fun, strange and unusual. Recent island visitor Elissa Renouf came to our island to savour the Salt Spring Island experience. She enjoyed her visit and brought her camera to capture the sights and memories. One particular aspect of Elissa's visit to the island really stood out to her and it wasn't the usual beauty found by the water, or the mountains and farm valleys. It was an altogether different kind of nature. Man beards. Salt Spring Island man beards to exact. Elissa found herself entranced by many of the beards being sported by some of our handsome local men and she wanted us to share her findings for all to enjoy. So here they all are in their unshaved glory, we bring you, The Beards of Salt Spring.
