Update: Since we went to press, Ruby started laying eggs, showing she’s comfortable in her new home.
Our cover photo and some from inside are by Maria Glaze, Ruby’s adopted “Mom”. Ruby even has her own Facebook page.
The May issue is our annual focus on pets, so we also have stories about how to keep your dog happy, pet blessings, the new SPCA shelter and aquariums.
This issue also continues our “I Made the Move” feature, which will look at interesting folks who moved to Powell River and why they chose this community. It features the owners of one of our favourite restaurants, Little Hut Curry.
We have a bit of a food focus this month, as we also include a recipe for nettles, which can be harvested wild on Texada and elsewhere in this area, and we publish the schedule for the Lund Shellfish Festival, May 24 to 26. There’s different food each day, so don’t miss that event!
We also have our usual columns and features on gardening, education, business and more.
