Welcoming Committee

gull01Traveling this month with Dusk Dances. This week, Vancouver.

Checked in to the hotel room, opened the sliding door onto the balcony (balcony! an 8th floor room with a balcony!) to let in some air, sat down to unpack and heard a quiet flapping.

I nudged my way over to the opening and poked my head out and there was this gentleman having a good look right back at me.

This tune immediately came into my head.

If you’re in Vancouver you might want to come down to Portside Park at 7pm to see the family friendly Dusk Dances. The dance is lovely, the music is fun and the backdrop is unbeatable.

For those of you in Ottawa, we’ll be there next week.
