NINE DAYS...

... since I last posted?? It's not like I don't have time....

Well, we had to move from the Empress docks before they got jam-packed for the May long weekend, so we are on the smaller Fort Street docks now until the end of June. I have a full view of the harbour, but it's a lot noisier -- float planes coming and going from 7 am - 7 pm, lots of whale watcher zodiacs and other boat traffic. But it's all about making adjustments and compromise now, anyway...

Here's another pic of the mama duck and her babes ... we haven't seen them for a few days now, so I hope they're okay!
We did a quick trip up-Island the other day to deliver fleeces to the Qualicum Bay fibre mill - we stopped at Cowichan Bay for lunch on the way home, and the tide was way out:
Then they got pre-empted by this guy... (remember you can click the photo to see it bigger):

Meanwhile, I'm working on shawl #12 for the year -- it's a laceweight merino-silk blend that was gifted to me, my own design, and will use lots of beads!


No news to report .... just knitting and putting one foot in front of the other, still. Knit'n'Cafe today, yay!

Where we do park now to come and visit you?
