Today I decided to drive east of the park to see the village of Five Islands. Five Islands is a provincial village that consists, essentially, of homes and farms on either side of the road that runs through it. They don’t even have a traffic light. There are 3 restaurants, a small market and a house with a sign out front that says you can buy fresh eggs there after 6 p.m. daily. There are a couple of side roads that sometimes lead to a cluster of houses, but basically “what you see is what you get”. The single church only holds services once or twice a month since the congregations in these villages are so small that there is only one preacher for all of them. He travels the circuit, visiting a different church each Sunday. The atmosphere here is quaint and tranquil. I was a little concerned, though, to discover that the Senior Center had a graveyard in the side yard. Kind of makes you wonder how strenuous the activities are there. :-)
