Yesterday morning I was down on Dallas Road to watch the first cruise ship of the season come in at 8 a.m. There will be over 200 of these come and go from our harbour this summer .... what recession??

It was a lovely morning at the water -- after watching the cruise ship dock, I drove to Clover Point so I could watch for the Victoria Clipper that Dina would be on. Finished several more inches of the brown scarf while I watched this tugboat and barge go by...

(Yes, that's the thing about watching tugs pulling barges .... you can knit *inches* on a scarf in the interim!)

Then the Clipper arrived and I got to meet Dina ...

... with whom, it turns out, I have lots in common.

We spent the day playing tourist around town (and never even made it to a yarn store -- good thing she's still got Monday, when we get back, to explore!), capped with a Fish'n'Chip dinner at Fisherman's Wharf where we joined our son Jason and his girlfriend Kristen.

Along with another knitting buddy, Jennifer, we are off to the Fun Knits retreat on Quadra Island this morning!
