We met her last summer at the Saturday Market, and wow...that indeed was a busy booth - for a good reason, as her creations are delicious! She came to Galiano Island 25 years ago, but only started her very successful bakery 3 years ago. Alison's favourite spots are Pebble Beach, Mount Galiano and  Bluff Park.

#sunset #hellobc #destinationbc #exporebc #southerngulfislands #galianoisland #relax #weekend Last fall we met up with Lael Bachman, a born and raised Salt Spring Islander - and loving it here. She works at the Local Pub in downtown Ganges and recommends the fields at Burgoyne Bay or Mount Maxwell for a stroll, no matter in which season you visit.
