A friend of mine moved up to the Pow Wow as it's affectionately bumper stickered to be (heart included! I knew we'd get along...) and invited me up for some transit, seaside, sunburn, gardening, book reading (aloud), hammock lounging, hill climbing, dog petting, sunset admiring, shore thumping (waves!), concert story listening, pretzel eating, up at 4:40 am, 37 -inch sail boat driving, I'm still on a boat for another 12 hours after I'm off the boat after 12 hours, see an eagle catch a fish right in front of my eyes, sea lion dive, tanker motor around, binocular looking good time of a weekend. Thanks Claudia and Fraser and Xena and Matisse. I had a big smiles sort of time!
On the ferry to the Sunshine Coast.
Beautiful British Columbia!
My new friend, Sherry, made this slide show of the reading I did at the Powell River Public Library. It was my first public reading, ever! (I've read it to friends here and there along it's path of production...but nothing like this!) I was so touched by the gesture, I teared up. Thanks Sherry! Incredibly sweet! I couldn't have asked for a better audience. :D
After the reading, I worked on some felting and gave a felting lesson...
...saw an airplane...
..took the bus...
...and ate some heart shaped hot sauce.
What a great weekend!
