“It seems only the old are able to sit next to one another and not say anything and still feel content. The young, brash and impatient, must always break the silence. It is a waste, for silence is pure.” ― Nicholas Sparks, The Notebook
Three years ago when I visited Saturna Island B.C. the Family Estate winery was alive, bustling, thriving and apparently doing well financially. This past summer when I visited the winery was closed for business. Sixty acres of fertile land contain four vineyards . Visitors were welcomed to enjoy the wine tastings and the cuisine the bistro offered. The winery is now for sale. Residents are upset that this attraction has closed its doors possibly forever. — G.C.
