On the Road begins

Saturday June 28
We were made a wonderful breakfast by Sharon then waited in the Swartz Bay ferry line up and caught the 12:00 pm ferry for the mainland. We hung out with Sharon and Larry on board. Sharon let me use sunglasses then ended up giving them to me. We hugged, said good bye and off we went – on another big adventure.

We waited for about 40 minutes in a hot line-up with mosquitoes waiting outside the window. We were waiting for the Albion Ferry which crossed to Maple Ridge to go to Vivian and Tony Kapusta's home to drop off my "Family Trees: Healing" quilt.
She showed me her studio, shortarm Juki, B-line (wonderful wooden quilting frame, I want one) set-up, all the quilts she had for the Canadian Expressions, all her quilts including her eagle quilt (wow, by the way!!!). Tony and Vivian invited us for supper–pizza. Their house has the appearance of a flat roof rancher which is built around a pool and a garden. Ken thinks that is how we might want to build; he got that idea when we came to Mexico last summer. We got to also see the cat she inherited from her Father. He is a lovely, big, fuzzy, reddish, orange boy that seems to be quite friendly. Later while in California we would hear of his unfortunate fate.
