At the end of June 2018, I retired from a job I’d enjoyed for over twenty years and left a city I’d lived in since childhood to start a new life on Vancouver Island. Sidney, a town of about 12,000 folks, is about four and a half thousand kilometers west and several thousand light years away from Toronto. This blog is a way to share our transition and ongoing journey.

The Dragonfly Cafe
This homey cafe is a little off the beaten track and well worth seeking out. With seating inside and out, you can make yourself comfy with a hot or cold beverage while you wait for a tasty panini to arrive hot off the grill.
The emphasis here is quality ingredients and minimizing waste. There are plenty of veggie options and the daily specials don't disappoint. There is also an interesting selection of local items for sale including some stunning artwork by owner Tahirih Goffic.
The Dragonfly Cafe, #17, 2234 Harbour Rd, Sidney opens weekdays from 7:30 to 17:00 serving breakfast, lunch, coffee and freshly baked treats. Recommended.
