Small World Indeed

When Wayne and I are in Powell River, we're constantly reminded that it's a small world (or at least town). Our first night back we went to Moose n' Eddies restaurant in the Town Centre Mall. We love their open-face steak sandwich. Things were a little slow, so we talked with the bartender/waitress about the new Quality Foods store and what's been happening while we were gone. When Wendy ran our credit card she said, "Now I know who you are. I have your book Up the Lake. My dad's Poki." We knew Poki from the Powell River ATV club. He was a wonderful man who was taken way too early in life. You can read more about him at his Facebook page.

The next morning we headed straight for our float cabin up the lake. We've been gone over three weeks and were anxious to get back home. We may have city condos, but for us, home is on the lake. In our front "yard" sits Mr. Blue. He's a Malibu Two made by Ocean Kayaks in Ferndale, WA. It turns out that Tim (the former owner of our airplane hangar in Bellingham) used to own the company before he sold out to Johnson Outdoors. Yes indeed, it's a small world.

After a quick trip to the new Quality Foods, Wayne and I are headed back up the lake. Maybe we'll take Mr. Blue out for a spin in Tim's honour. -- Margy
