A Perfect Pender Island Saturday....Art ...Wine...Pie and wildlife

Our first Saturday stop on Saturday is Pender's outstanding outdoor farmer's market.

 There are stalls laden with fresh vegetables and fruits, Pender's fabulous pies (which sell out very quickly so move fast!!) and our latest discovery there-   foccacia bread stuffed with herbs and cheeses. Of  course we browsed the craft stalls and enjoyed chatting with artisans including many of the artists from The Red Tree Gallery .

After filling our bags with a delectable selection of goodies we headed over to Morning Bay Winery. 

We were delighted to see a lovely art exhibition there by Amy Heggie.

We purchased some of morning Bay's delicious  Chiaretto which is perfect for sipping on a deck with a good book and an ocean view!

The last stop was at the wharf where we lined up for fresh crab to go with all the treats we had picked up at the market for a marvelous dinnertime  feast!

Once home we had nothing more to do but read, look forward to dinner, wait for whales and enjoy the wildlife!
