I took Ramona up Island today to Campbell River

and visited with my friends Norma and Croft who I last saw in April in Nevada….they are lovely and Croft is a handy man and he offered to install a thingie on Ramona!!!!!  Was that too technical for you??  It is a device that will keep a trickle charge on my battery when the engine is not started for a while, so a handy thing to have and Croft spent quite a while hooking this red wire to that yellow wire and stuff like that.

He also did a couple of other little jobs for me and I rewarded him and Norma to great fish and chips on the dock!!!

Native legend states that there were no grizzlie bears on the Island and when this bear swam over from the other Island as soon as it landed it turned into this huge rock!!

We then went back to the house and watched the hockey game…Croft being a Canucks fan and me the Sharks fan….well I got to cheer first when the Sharks scored but my moment of glory was really a moment as the Canucks thoroughly outplayed and out scored the Sharks for a convincing win…..Croft was much more gracious than I would have been….so I had to drive back to Nanaimo with a heavy heart…….I had a good day and thanks Norma for your hospitality and Croft for the work!!!
