Gilbert and I took the little boat with the 20 Hp Honda to scoot across Coal Harbour to Lonsdale Quay. A great evening for boating. At the Quay the Market was happening. Lots of food vendors and craft tables. I had the Grilled Cheese special and really enjoyed it. Wall to wall children. Great kid fiddlers I gave loonie too. A whole level of dogs and children filled the space beneath the adult layer. Great blue grass feet stomping and hand clapping band, Rosco.
I had a coffee on the Quay writing a blog about my sailboat’s engine. Dusk came. I didn’t have my boat lights with me. Didn’t even have Gilbert’s life jacket. It’s on the SV GIRI up on land having a new engine installed. I remembered thought that as kids we’d never had life jackets for our dogs and they’d survived. I just took more caution driving. We headed back to the boat. A pleasant ride across Coal Harbour with the big boat’s lights coming on like stars. A lovely evening.
