NO REST FOR THE WICKED :)

Yesterday we spent the better part of the day researching online and then going looking at vans to replace our poor old Windstar -- it's blowing blue smoke, misfiring, and generally really, truly on its last legs. We found a 1996 Chevy Lumina ...

... which we don't love, but it's okay, and the price was right -- $750. Good thing, because what we can actually afford is $0! lol

Oh, well, life is what it is, and it's pretty exciting for these folks....

Meet Cec and Marissa, and their twin 16-year-old sons ... tenants in our marina who left yesterday after several years of preparation to spend 4 months going through the 'north-west' passage on their sailboat...

They'll spend a month in refit, and then head north through Haida G'waii and around Alaska, hoping to get through before the ice becomes too thick again in September! How's that for an adventure??

While we were all watching them get off the dock, this crane operation was coming through...

And they're off!


Knit'n'Cafe today, and maybe I'll get a decent picture of this sweater in progress...
