Many things signify the Spirit of Hornby Island. I think of the dogs. It is kind of well known I talk to them in dog talk a little bark here and a little bark there gets a nice bark back or a tail shake and often, a head shake. The deer and eagles should be recognized as well. I haven't talked to them very much so I don't get the same response. The visitors should be part of this spirit thing too. Why, just the other evening a few of us locals were helping get a boat off its broken trailer near the bakery when off the biking trail came two big guys. “Can we help?” Yup, it happens all the time.
