Here’s a picture of our most honoured guest of the year, Dolly. After a lifetime of traveling this coast in her 55’ fero-cement sail boat, at 91 years of age, Dolly was happy to revisit her old haunts from aboard the Columbia III. Spry and good-humoured she hadn’t lost her mariner’s eye... or ear. “I like the sound of your engine,” she declared on the first day! Dolly was happiest standing in the wheelhouse keeping an eye on everything. “You let me know if I am in your way,” she stated. To which I jokingly replied, “Oh, you’ll know when you’re in my way because I’ll just pick you up and toss you over board!” To which she chuckled, “That would probably be a good idea.”
Dolly, our most experienced sailor at 91.
An old and very remote tombstone, only Jeanette would know about, dated 1892 near Toba Inlet.
