As I rode into Ganges, I passed a big marina on the left and soon was in the center of the city. I spent several hours at the TJ Beans coffeehouse to catch on my blog. It turned out that it was an excellent choice ... good coffee, good sandwiches, and fast Wi-Fi. The central area of Ganges was jammed with cars and people. Saltspring Island is the biggest and busiest in the Gulf Islands chain.
At 6:30PM, I picked a bento box to-go at Arrigato Sushi and headed along the busy Fulford-Ganges Road to the Mowhinna Creek Campground. It was brutal climb up a steep hill to get to it. It was a small basic campground which can accommodate RVs and tents. It has a children's play area but no store or any other frills. The cheapest tent sites were $22. The showers and bathrooms were clean. After eating the teriyaki chicken, I sat down on the bench near the office to charge my tablet and to watch a few YouTube clips. The proprietor lady popped out the door and said, "Love, you can't watch videos and movies here because our Internet bandwidth is very low and I can't download our email." I replied, "Yes, I noticed that."
