Snug Cove, Bowen Island
5 1/2″ x 7″
Sketched while waiting for ferry crew’s 7pm dinner break to end – good thing I rushed down there to catch the 7pm sailing back to the mainland. darnit! I never remember about that hour long break in the evening… Or the dangerous cargo sailing on Wednesdays.
When one has got nothing to do but wait, one may as well relax, sit by the water, listen to the sailboat rigging clink and rattle while the boats rock back and forth, and watch the sunset stain the mountainside on the other side of the sound.
There are red, undulating jellyfish in the inky water under the dock and as the cormorants fly in to roost in the cedars across the cove the island begins to settle into evening. The hour passes quickly and the trip back to a city busy with Saturday night begins.
