Meeting up with friends and family on beautiful Pender Island over the long weekend is a tradition.
We have pot luck dinners, share appetizers, have cocktails and play disc golf. There is a trophy for the winning team...this year two teams tied. Lovely daughter and her fellow participated and were on the winning teams.
We took the cats with us which was quite an undertaking...
they didn't like it when the boat was underway but seemed to enjoy exploring all the nooks and crannies when we were at the dock.
They liked being able to be out on the back deck under the canvas as they could see other boaters, sea gulls and dogs which intrigued Chester but not Pepper!
It's a very cozy salon.
the compact interior requires creative storage solutions and minimal galley gear!
the ledges come in handy
our first dinner aboard
Pepper is snug and dry even when it rained
both cats liked the dashboard
Pepper snoozed on the cushions
Chester hung out on the dinette
(which I had to clean every time I used it!)
the boat handled very well
it helped that the seas and wind were favourable
we had a great cruise and lots of fun this weekend
and have a list of things that we want to improve and a few staples that we want to purchase.
I'm hoping to get over to visit Henry Brian and Isla this week.
I thought about our new grandson while away and I was fortunate to get several photos on my IPhone
from our lovely DIL!
Cannot wait to have another snuggle...
I have gifts to deliver
and I think I'll cook them a meal so that they can enjoy an easy dinner.
Tomorrow is the first day of school.
It will feel odd not going back to work as I have done for the past 25 years!
What was your weekend like?
