Together Again (or the first time) -- 7/18/2014

Comox is a good place to provision for going north, as there is a large super market, so late morning Herb and I take the pull cart up the hill with our shopping list.  When the cart is loaded and my two tote bags are full, we leave the rest of the list for tomorrow and head back to the marina.

Wow!  Look at this! There are miles and miles of Ranger Tugs behind us and on the dock across the fairway.  Now the main connecting dock is filling up, also, and we are excited to see Saratoga Smile coming in, with plenty of people standing by to catch her lines.

With Ed at the helm, Jeanne tosses lines as they opt to go behind Dave and Karen's  Heart of Gold, who is already at the dock.  She is walked back to see if she will fit at the port side of Willie's Tug.  Someone calls out, "Will she fit?"

When I see two feet of bow needing to come in and only one foot left between her and Willie's Tug, I say, "No, she won't!"

So the fix for this situation is Heart of Gold moves a little forward to ease Saratoga Smile in.  There is always room for one more.  All you do is untie and tie again.

Twenty-three Ranger Tugs have gathered now; cocktails and appetizers are scheduled for 5:30 on the dock.  

I am still learning names of new friends, but in this photo I see Peggy, Betty Ann, Mike, Chris, Joan, Keith and Janina.

Chris makes colorful ice cubes!
