Ferry Friendship

by Janet Smith

On a beautiful summer morning in September, as the church was not available for Friendship Coffee, 14 individuals met at the  Swartz Bay Ferry terminal for a 3 hour, relaxing mini cruise of the Gulf Islands calling by Galiano and Mayne Islands.

We couldn't have asked for better weather.
For many this was a free day out as our senior friends don't pay on B.C. Ferries!
We were blessed not only by the weather but also by the people who shared the trip with us.

We were able to visit with one another and also make new acquaintances with Eileen and Harvey. Eileen being a friend and neighbour of Patricia MacLeod and Harvey being a friend and neighbour of  Yolanda Csordas.

We even dined on some wonderful chocolate cookies, Scottish shortbread,  juice and more, in fact we had so many goodies that there was lots left over to bring home.
As you can see by the photos a great time was enjoyed by us all,  thanks to everyone for taking part, making this a joyful experience for all who came.

If you missed this event, it's not to late to be included on the trip to Ikea in Coquitlam on 25th October.  Come and join us, we'd love to have you come along with us, just sign up at the church.

With thanks to Michael Denton for the lovely pictures                                                            Posted by Picasa
