Blustery Day

As tornado-like winds ripped through the market and Snug Cove Saturday morning, vendors were hanging on to their tents and wares for dear life. It was strong enough to take down this tree along the main road, which would then create a bit of a havoc as it hit the powerlines and left most of Bowen without electricity.

It was most fortunate that there was a detour available through Cates Hill Road to get to the other side of the island, otherwise the backlog of ferry traffic could have been darn ugly.

Desperately in need of warmth and fuel, we packed up early and headed up to Artisan Square to grab a late lunch at The Galley Bistro with our friends Holly and David.

Other than the quick hellos in the ferry queue, we haven't had much time to catch up. They haven't participated in the market this year due to their ever growing business and since they also had no power at their gallery, we called this impromptu rendezvous a divine intervention. This was also an opportunity for David to give us a personal invite to celebrate Holly's birthday next weekend. *wink*

The absence of light on this cloudy day made for a somewhat romantic ambiance. Only cold plates were being wine and a Lazy Fisherman sandwich next to the fireplace it was.

Comfy, cozy and yummy...aah.
