Nanaimo Harbour – Mostly in the Fog

For those old enough, you may remember a detective series that came out in the late 50’s called Peter Gunn – created by Blake Edwards and music by Henry Mancini. I remember the music because my sister Maureen had the album. The background music for the video below is from one of the tracks on that album. In our family – musical ability: Dad who was tone deaf (in later years when he said he was going to choir practice we knew he was headed off to the pub); myself – not tone deaf; then there was Mom (violin) and Maureen (an amazing voice) who had all the talent. Maureen has also always had a wide range of music that she enjoys (and I still tap into): NANAIMO HARBOUR.

Bike Ride – Denman Island

Close to the end of the trip, Ron and I stopped at the general store. While we were sitting on the porch eating an ice cream, two people backed into each other in the parking lot. Instead of getting angry, they got out of their cars and gave each other a hug. I didn’t get that on camera but here is the video of the bike ride: DENMAN ISLAND.
