Can’t wait? I found a link to electronic and print copies here.
Author John Grain revisits teenage life on Salt Spring Island during the 1960s. “Salt Spring Island was the hub, the focal point of the counterculture in Canada and I had missed it,” says Grain.
Here’s the story of what’s happened so far in this shot:
1. The Gulf Islands Water Taxi Scholarship (large aluminum boat; middle right) attempting to return to it’s dock space stopped to wait for the large sailboat to slowly complete it’s turn and leave (there was no room for the sailboat to tie up).
2. An inflatable dinghy cuts right across Scholarship’s bow, causing Scholarship to stop and reverse. (the dinghy will soon discover the dinghy dock is full)
3. A small runabout, seeing Scholarship stopped in the middle of the entrance decides to barge through too, pretty much in front of the sailboat now trying to escape the area.
