The Canadian Army base closed down in Masset, and someone came up with the idea to market the base housing to tourists. And it's working, if you can believe the signs. They don't have a view or anything, but they're selling for something like 40,000 dollars. Canadian.

Masset is the largest city, with 1400 people. The old base rec facilities (now public) are right across the street from these places.

Shelly's travel tip #1: If you can't find a hot shower anywhere, go find the local rec center and look for the pool. You know, the only time that she paid for a camping space her entire trip was when she was with me at Agate Beach. She just stops her Voyager and sleeps wherever she wants. I am such a weenie.
