I'll Be Back Soon, Promise...

Dearest Friends, I did indeed worm my way out of the Big Apple and am now safely back in BC. Alas, this week has been very hectic and this afternoon I'm off to glorious Mayne Island for the Canada Day loooooong weekend. So about 4PM Pacific Time, I'll be ensconsed on a ferry much like the one pictured above, munching nanaimo bars with Darling Daughter (our little tradition). All this means I'll continue to be scarce on the blogfront until next week, when I'll back in town, living the bachelor highlife while Dearest Wife and sproglets stay on on Mayne for another week.

Part of said highlife will include seeing The Tranzmitors on Saturday, 7 July. Oh yeah!! So, to tide you over until we meet again, here's another track by this fab Vancouver band:

The Tranzmitors - Nervous Breakdown (buy their 7" singles here or their debut album e-here)

Sounds like a lovely weekend. I love the islands though I prefer going by sailboat :)

Just curious but do you ever really work? Man, if you do, then I really want a job like that, wow........

I live in Seattle and we go to BC and Victoria often. But I need to know where the cool hip locals go in the Summer.

Now I have Mayne Island, check...

and... uhm, well that's it so far.

sounds like a wonderful place.

Dearest JaG, I spent most of my childhood summers on sailboats, but somehow the taste did not remain. I far prefer other forms of marine transport & amusement - I've recently taken up ocean kayaking and LOVE it!!

Dearest Merz, indeed I do work. But I'm fortunate enough to live in a place where jaunts like this one are eminently feasible!

Dearest Juan, not sure Mayne is hip, though there are a few hippies on it. Plus a lot of retired folk. And otters. I guess they're hip. But yes, I think it's wonderful.

Kayaking- nice! I enjoy it when I find one with a big enough opening. The dad has a couple but I cannot get in them due to height.
