As you all know, we offer the Columbia III for tours for a very nominal fee at Christmas time. We cruise the local BC waters, well lit with Christmas lights, for a few hours and serve tea, coffee and home made cookies. One passenger was Tom Kruesel of the local Lutheran Church. So about a month ago Pastor Tom called and asked if we would take his congregation out for a similar cruise before our summer season commenced. We had to take the mothership to Campbell River for our annual Transport Canada safety inspection so the time was perfect. This time Pastor Tom supplied the cookies and we the boat and the weather was perfect.
Even when the mothership has 25 people on board there are still quiet moments to reflect: warm sun, light breeze, salt air, snowy mountains and just a tiny bit of peace.
