One of the very best parts of a boating life is the people we meet.
After spending several years living in a large city
and now after three seasons of boating adventures
I can’t help but compare the two existances.
I can walk down the street here in Montreal,
pass by dozens of people and no one will speak,
or offer a greeting, or sometimes not even smile.
When I first moved here from the east coast,
François took me by the hand and familiarized me with the public transit.
He cautioned: ‘Now Kathy, you can’t just say hello to everyone you meet.
The law of the jungle rules here.
Don’t look the monkey in the eye’
It’s not quite that bad but I can’t help compare with our life on the boat.
Boat people always greet other boat people.
Boat people stop to chat whether they know you or not.
Boat people always offer help if they are able.
Which brings me to the thrust of this post.
which also coincides nicely with the holiday party season.
Happy hour, cocktail parties or docktails,
it’s the same environment.
getting together with friends to share stories, experiences
and in my galley, enjoying treats…
Many more to come,
but we are all warm and cosy indoors this evening
with friends and good cheer.

I’m working on improving accessibility to my new site

Cheers and happy hunting!
