Bring the whole family to a wonderful free evening of Shakespeare performed in the outdoors. Written just after “Hamlet” was completed, “Twelfth Night” reveals a more mature Shakespeare, writing about miracles of reconciliation, of second chances and of redemption. Classic Shakespearean dramatic irony is paired with his trademark laugh-out-loud comedy plus a liberal dose of romance. Perennially popular, this play is Shakespeare at his best. Please dress warmly and bring a blanket. Chairs are provided at the San Juan venues. No tickets or reservations are needed. We are on a first-come-and-welcome-all basis.

Audiences all over North America are falling in love with the funny, upbeat Good Lovelies. Winners of the 2010 Juno Award (Canadian Grammy) and a nominee in 2012 for Roots Album of the Year, as well as being awarded Vocal Group of the Year in 2011 at the Canadian Folk Music Awards, the Good Lovelies are making waves across Canada, the United States, and now in the UK and Australia.

The aptly named Good Lovelies are Caroline Brooks, Kerri Ough and Sue Passmore, all of them best friends. Part folk-roots, part Western Swing, the Toronto-based trio relies on unerring three-part vocal harmonies, clever songs, and, on stage, funny repartee drawn from a seemingly endless succession of comedic adventures on the road.

Time and distance had a profound effect on events as they unfolded during the Pig War crisis of 1859 as installation of the transcontinental telegraph was two years away and the Pony Express did not come into being until 1860.

Learn how and when the first telegraph came to San Juan Island, as well as its context nationwide in the mid-1800s, in an illustrated talk with Park Ranger Doug Halsey.

Word of Kaiser Wilhelm I’s decision regarding the disposition of the San Juan Islands on October 24, 1872 arrived in Victoria a day after Wilhelm spoke the words in Berlin, Halsey said. Communication with the East Coast had gone from overland wagons to swift clipper ships, from overland stagecoach to steamship and rail passage via the Isthmus of Panama. The famous Pony Express briefly accelerated communication starting in 1860, but was put out of business on Oct. 24, 1861, the day the first transcontinental telegraph was completed.
