Maple Ridge

We left Campbell River and made our way to Maple Ridge. After a close vote we decided to take the ferry instead of attempting to jump over the water separating Vancouver Island from the mainland.  Of course, the best thing about ferries is waiting to get on them.  Here is Chris doing just that.

Once the waiting was over, we boarded the ferry, disembarked on the mainland, and drove all the way to Maple Ridge where we were staying at the lovely Penelope B&B.

Before the show we were lucky enough to have dinner with our good friend Tim Readman.  Here is Chris talking to him.

Actually, Chris is shoving food in his mouth. But there was much conversation.

Then it was time for the show! And this show was all Mike… at least as far as the audience was concerned. They shouted out things like “Mike!” and “Hey, Mike!” and “Mike! Mike! Mike!” Then one guy shouted, “I want your babies, Mike!”which, it must be said, was a rather awkward moment.

After the show we went out to sign cd’s, but little did we know that to get there we would have to go through the corridor of doom that led from backstage.


What will tomorrow bring? Another ferry ride and a show in Sechelt on the sunshine coast.
