Monday August 24. Out on the town.

Written by Jack van Ommen on August 24th, 2015

Another Gig Harbor sail boat passed me just outside the harbor. He told me that he was on is way to the start of the annual single and double handed “Vashon Challenge”. I would have done this if I had known the date. But I had a rendez-vous in Tacoma. I saw the about twelve boats floating nearly motionless at the starting line, from a distance. The steam from the pulp mill stacks went straight up. So, I did not feel so bad after all. A Pacific White Sided Dolphin swam up with the boat. I walked up from the Dock Street Marina to the Antique Motor Cycle Show and met my long time Bellingham friend Sid, his son Doug and his grandson Blaine at the show. Lisa picked me up to have dinner with her and Harry. I made it back to Gig harbor for the 11 o’clock second service on Sunday morning. The church has not been this full since 9-11 or Easter. People were standing in the back and in the narthex. I need to bring my camera next Sunday to post pictures to my Dutch friends, God may have disappeared from Jorwerd* but apparently settled here in Gig Harbor.
