HARBOURFEST

This weekend, about 200 yards away, the first ever 'JumpShip' bike competition will take place on the back side of Ships Point. They've brought in a barge upon which the race course is being built as we speak ..... check it out here!

And, of course, Saturday is World Wide Knit in Public Day at 'Mile 0' in Beacon Hill Park (at the corner of Douglas and Dallas) -- hope to see you there, 1 - 4 pm. :-)

Finally, we have good news about our work/life situation .... how inviting does THIS look?
That's the waterfront estate -- including the private marina --that Michael and I will be managing as of June 16th! Not too shabby, huh? It's on Saltspring Island, which has been dear to my heart for 40 years, and it's only 40 minutes away! (Well, it'll take us about 3 hours to get there via Wind Walker, but it's a 20-minute ferry ride and that ferry goes from Schwartz Bay - Sidney - which is only 20 minutes from here.) All of which is to say that we get to start a whole new life without having to completely cut the ties with our Victoria one -- we're pretty excited! More info to come....

I've kayaked past that marina. It's great to know that you will be making it a great place for boat-users. Congratulations on the move!
