Better Schooner than Later

I am back in Vancouver having just returned from a lovely road trip with Doug and the girls up the Sechelt Peninsula in British Columbia and then across to Vancouver Island. We stayed in some fantastic places and spent a lot of time on the water. I plan to make a travel post as soon as I have the time, but in the meantime, here is a sneak peak.   Below is a photo of me knitting on a 53 foot schooner off the coast of Powell River, near Blubber Bay.

That’s Leah in the background, looking out for whales from the bow of the boat.  (Emma was busy hoisting sails and Doug was at the wheel.) Here is a close-up photo I took of the knitting on my lap.  It is very hard to photograph black knitting and make it look interesting, but I think the texture of the lace knitting in linen looks good with the ropes from the sails.

Of course, I couldn’t resist putting a pun in the post title.  I hope your knitting adventures are pun-worthy, too!
