Both Bre’r and Perter make excellent alternatives

Sandspit's Shingle by Gaetano: Isn't it a bot early for the Easter bunny!

Isn’t it a bit early for the Easter bunny!

Has anyone seen Bre’r Rabbit or Peter Rabbit roaming Sandspit?

Christina Place more precisely has become the cabbage patch to some cute bunny rabbits.   I hear these special bunny rabbits were very spicy to taste.

Tasty you say, ah yes that’s what happens when a cute little, quick little bunny steal its way into a neighbour’s greenhouse for some very tasty winter herbs and greens.  A greenhouse is much more productive than a hard to find cabbage patch, what would Mr. McGregor say!

While they are ‘cute’ little bunny rabbits they are becoming a nuisance, digging where they’re not supposed to dig.

The local canine population must have fun trying to catch the little suckers! Not to mention the eagles or the martens.

While driving the stretch of highway around McKenzie, Victoria, heading up the ‘Hat’, I saw rabbits galore basking in the sun eyeballing silly motorists, who slowed down to ogle nearly causing accidents in the process.

These rabbits are definitely a safety hazard.

When I was heading down to Kits Beach in-and-around the waterfront in the Point Grey area close to the yachting club, I saw umpteen rabbits in all shapes, colours and sizes enjoying the attention from the locals and tourists.

Apparently, this area is designated an all-year-round tourist attraction, LOL!

Rabbit is an excellent alternative to our local wild game or our ocean’s bounty and if you’re not into Bambi and Peter Rabbit.

SuperValu has an excellent assortment of domesticated variety cuts in the butcher shop.

The ocean’s bounty was plentiful on the weekend and during the past few weeks out front, several boats of anglers were seem catching their limit of Springs.

At one point I couldn’t keep count of the white seagull heads bobbing in the waters obviously trying to get in on the catch from the excellent ‘feed’ that has drawn the American Springs down into our waters.

Thanks to the mindful stewardship and wisdom of our elders across the way, howa ☺.

The Sandspit Salmon Enhancement Society must be gearing up for their March meeting, so do make a point of stopping by to see what you can do to help enhance the habitat and life cycle of our ocean’s bounty.

What a great way to learn to conserve what we have; to help each other out or to just get out as a family or as friends and do something worthwhile for your community —  we have it all in our backyard.

MIMC would love to see you at their next meeting.   Come out, find out the latest on the Sandspit Water System Report and Recommendations; on the Ministry of Forests proposed Road Deactivation Survey Creek Area or find out how to access funding through the Vibrant Haida Gwaii Communities Initiative for community projects that support the maintenance, creation, support and development of community infrastructures … i.e. clean water, sewers, transportation, communication, waste management, recreation facilities and community safety initiatives.

If you haven’t been privy to the neon orange flyer floating around town then stop by our local post office for a copy.

The Gwaii Trust Society is spearheading and administering the disbursement of a million bucks over the next four years, giving $250,000 for each community each year. See you – everywhere! ☺

Funds for this issue is being donated to the Sandspit Salmon Enhancement Society.
