Pierre's Echo Bay Marina Visits the Seattle Boat Show -- Monday, January 30, 2017

Having attended the Seattle Boat Show on the opening day last Friday, when we tasted some really good wine, and visited with the Ranger Tug factory people (and shared our good experiences with our R-31 with some folks shopping for a boat), we return on Monday to go upstairs and see the exhibits and booths there.

Last year I was able to stand behind some people talking to Tove and Pierre of Pierre's Echo Bay Marina and clap my hands like Tove does to call guests to dinner at their lodge and marina.  It was then that Tove looked up to see who the former guest is.

But this time I am not able to sneak up on her.  She sees Herb and me just as they prepare for a photo shoot, and invites us the be in the picture. 

Tova gestures us to come on in!

Tove introduces us to her friends, who are also in the photo.  Directly behind her and to the right (unfortunately in a shadow) is Harry Caraco of M/V Mi Alma, and to the right of him is Howard Behar, former owner of M/V Tapestry. She says they met through the marina.

Howard is the former international president of Starbucks. He’s just written a very inspirational book, “It’s Not About the Coffee”. (It’s about leadership principles. It’s about the people; about how you treat them that comes first - employees and customers).   Howard and Harry have been best friends since elementary school.

Here is a link to our favorite marina in The Broughtons of British Columbia, Pierre's Echo Bay Marina.  When we visit this Summer, we may just get lucky enough to hear a presentation by Howard.
