THE SALTAIR SONG Terry Boyle 03/11/15
Well look what they miss on the highway
When they’re hurrying from here to there
They may get where they’re going without ever knowing
The beautiful place called Saltair.
Well it’s neither a town nor a city
But it’s rather a home that we share
With its forest and trails as we walk by the rails
Beside Stocking Creek Park in Saltair.
When the warm summer breezes are blowing
And the sunshine has banished all care
To the sand at the big rock the happy kids flock
To Boulder Point here in Saltair
Our water is some of the purest
That’s something incredibly rare
All credit we’ll take for our fine Stocking Lake
As its nectar flows down to Saltair.
The people of Saltair are friendly
With a helping hand always to spare
The community centre’s a brand new adventure
For the volunteers here in Saltair.
We have a safe, tropical climate
The palm trees grow tall in the parks
Owls, eagles and deer can have grub through the year
And we can stroll in Saltair after dark.
The Lagoon is a wonderful feature
With flora and fauna so rare
Keep your eyes on the road as the log barge unloads
Or you’ll end up in the drink in Saltair.
We may wander the world in our travels
To Istanbul, Duncan or Rome
We may not be as famous as downtown Chemainus
But it’s Saltair we love to call home.
Available for house concerts, festivals and special occasions
TERRY WILL BE PERFORMING HIS SONG AT THIS SATURDAY, FEB 06TH, 2016, AT THE SALTAIR COMMUNITY CENTRE
