Karen 1 came along for the ride. She'd never been to Bowen Island either and we put her in Bui's crew shirt. Bowen is pretty much a bedroom community of West Vancouver anymore and becoming a very expensive enclave of, well, all of "that." The island is serviced by BC Ferries and the Queen of Capilano makes about 15 return trips a day. I didn't get any decent shots of Snug Cove as I was too busy hearding the group. There is a shot of Point Atkinson and Lighthouse Park.
I did get this pretty shot of these nasturtiums. I can't help it. It is the gardener's daughter in me.
We had a group of Saudi doctors on board with their families and they are repeat customers for Scotty and Mo. They were all going to UBC Medical school on scholarship and it was a good bye party of sorts as some were heading back to Saudi as they had finished up. There were lots of ankle biters, the youngest at 3 months to about six or seven.
On the left of the photo is the Bowen Island. In the centre behind the white boat is Anvil Island and to the right Whytecliff Park and around in behind is Horseshoe Bay, a major departure point for BC Ferries to various island destinations. We are pointing up Howe Sound toward Squamish and Whistler.
Greig was inspired by the bowsprit on this beautiful sailboat and wants to do the same thing on the Dos Amores.
