Just back from the beach and my first walk down the ramp from the wharf to the new floats. Many neighbours got together on the Victoria Day weekend to build them.

About ten days later, great excitement as the big truck-mounted crane picked up the floats from our Elphinstone "park" and drove them to the Gibsons marina for the high tide launch. Exciting to see some of the builders standing on the floats as they were towed across to Granthams from the marina. Kids found their way down from the wharf and skipped back and forth as Bjorn, Clay, Mark and Brian, and the tow boat operator, got the floats in place and secured them to the historic dolphin and the wharf itself.

I felt the water today. Almost warm enough for a swim!
