Day Six: July 4th July 05 2015, 2 Comments

We arrived at Fleur-de-Lys after a four hour motor with westerly winds of about 15 knots.
The dock has plenty of water, and a shore power plug in.
And when the tide is high, it's pretty easy to get Jack on and off Virtue.

We met a man known as "big bob" at the wharf, who came along to see what we were about.
I just love the people who show up at the wharf willing to let us know what's available in their town.  Very helpful.

And in this case, he just so happened to be the next door neighbour of the one person I had ever met with a connection to Fleur-de-Lys.
He went off to tell her that her friend Janet was in the harbour, and Sherrye Shelley was pretty swift to come see me.  
Sherrye and I were both students of the Textiles Studies program at the College of the North Atlantic back in the 1990s,
but hadn't seen each other in quite a few years.
It was great to catch up with her and we plan to spend more time together doing some collaborative works.

Sherrye is making exquisite embroidered images like this one I found on her facebook page...

Sherrye told me about the Dorset Eskimo Soapstone Quarry, and Duke and I visited this evening.  
We were blown away with the site.

Another great visit with Sherrye and her family, and we were off back to Virtue to crawl into our bunks.  
Englee is tomorrow's destination.
