Video: Fall Fair Zucchini Racing

There is so much to see and do at the Salt Spring Island fall fair, but undoubtedly the zucchini racing is one of the big draws. Running on the on new 3 lane track, and for the first time featuring a water pond ending, the racing didn't disappoint. Big crowd, big fun, great times. Thank you to all the racers, organizers Noella and Mike Fraser and Harry Warner for MC'ing the event again this year. The Salt Spring Fall Fair continues on Sunday with a great line up of events all day.

Video: Frogs Singing to the Moon

Here on the Exchange we mostly share beautiful photos and videos of our fair island taken during the day. Shooting photos and video at night often doesn't highlight the character of the experience, but we would be remis not to share at least a little of the drama that happens here after dark, especially at this time of year. Last night, a big bold moon was dancing in the dark coming in and out of the mist and clouds while the chorus of frogs that blanket the island sang the night away. Enjoy a little Salt Spring Island after dark.

Photo Tour: Misty Mt. Maxwell on New Year's Day

Ever wonder what Mount Maxwell looks like in the winter? We did a family hike up the mountain on New Year's Day to enjoy the cool air and sometimes sunshine. The road is very rough and icy, with a number of downed trees across the road. You have to hike up a good bit of the way to make it to the top. Worth every step.
