The End Of It All
From October 23rd to November 7th the ferry run between Hornby and Denman Islands is closed to effect repairs and maintenance to the docks on both sides of the crossing.  All over the island there are plans of mass exodus as well as hot speculation that the closure will last much longer than the expected two weeks. While local reactions run the gamut from passive indifference to lamenting alarm it does highlight the fact that part of the road to our island home is over water and that I live a BC coastal life, like the CBC classic The Beachcombers (except our Hornby cast is much more improbable and entertaining).  Listen for the resounding slam signalling the closing of our island door on October 22nd at 6PM when the last ferry sails.
