Here is your 3 minute fun for the day - pretty insightful too...

Do you think there is truth in this?

All Sailors Safe and Happy...Deep Men of the Deep 2010

The 2010 sailing on Kootenay Lake has sadly come and gone. All hands (and feet) have returned safely ashore. One of the heads, the bald one, has some scabs - why do they make the ceilings so damn low in boats?

The weather was perfect (hot sunny days and cool, starry beyond belief nights). Deckhands Gary and Mark bunked on the roof of the Cameronian, listening to the lapping waves and seeing the pristine shore and sparkling water by moonlight. One of them snored loudly...

There were hikes to waterfalls (see below), excellent cuisine (see below), euchre games (if Gary is not your partner, you win), martinis in the afternoon...HUGE fish to catch (see below) and even HUGER stories to doubt (er..tell). For those who know the lake, we nosed ashore for nights at Coffee Creek, Sawmill Bay and Campbell Bay.

Lots of burdens in life. Lots of worries to carry for any thinking person. Lots of duties and busy-ness. But not for these days on the lake.

You had to be there to see how large it really was...(not my foot!)

All good ships have their traditions - some include olives on little toothpicks...

Interesting bit of history on Kootenay Lake

In the 1950's a group of Quakers moved from the USA to carve out a community at the north end of Kootenay Lake. Argenta continues to be a place of peace and beauty.

Here's a small taste of a film being made about these principled folks...
