Life is change. Without change, there is no life. And here on G Dock it is more evident than for folks living ashore.
On Thursday nite, we had a dock party honoring Doug and Ruth of s/v Angelique - they're leaving - going to Tacoma. Jay, who recently brought his brand new Hunter 49, s/v Kali Rising to the dock, will be taking their slip. Doug and Ruth, tho only here for a few years, rapidly became an integral part of the community out here at the end of G Dock. They are generous, gregarious, and wonderful folks. Tho Jay will be taking their slip, when they leave on the 26th of June they will leave a big hole in our little community. We welcome Jay, but we will sorely miss Doug and Ruth. So it goes in our transient society.
And now we will have friends in Tacoma.
As evening fell, the temperatures fell even further, and we retired inside - to the saloon on Ghost. There we were introduced to a new (to us, anyway) concoction called a Peppermint Patty - hot chocolate with peppermint schnapps - just the thing for a typical June evening in Seattle out on the water. Or for a ski trip.
These things could easily be addictive.
