Major feature on Mayne Island in the Seattle Times - with photos and video

A major feature all about Mayne Island was published in Saturday's Seattle Times travel section featuring 3 stories, photos and video on their web site:

"It seems a universal rule: Beautiful islands inspire artists, the way fertile gardens inspire chefs.

The article contains a photo slideshow of Mayne Island and a video interview on the Seattle Times web site with Jim McKenzie and M.D. Hennessy.



A companion article is in the same section focuses on other aspects on Mayne Island and includes detailed travel instructions and links to maps and accommodations:

And almost everything is do-it-yourself out here on Mayne, one of the lesser-visited of British Columbia's Gulf Islands. It's nine square miles of lazily winding roads with no traffic lights and only about 1,100 year-round residents — a count that triples in summer." Read more ...
There's also a related article in the travel section on the Gulf Islands as a whole: Get away from it all on B.C.'s Gulf Islands
