Port Credit Boat Show
by Gary McWilliams (aka Festival Nomad)
We were in Port Credit to visit an art show.
When I looked across the road, I noticed that there was a Boat Show.
If you know anything about Scoop (Judi) and me, you’ll know that we love boating!
Scoop grew up sailing (her parents owned a fast racing sailboat).
As a kid, she actually took sailing lessons at the same marina where the Boat Show was being held.
As for me, I grew up with power boats (stink pots to sailors).
It seemed, in the summer, I was always in or on the water! Boating, as a kid, was my solitude.
So it was natural for us to visit the Port Credit Boat Show after our tour of the Art Show.
The Show displayed all types of boats.
I was in “boat heaven“!
As we walked through the show, all kinds of memories came back to me!
As a kid, exploring Lake Boshkung in a runabout with a 5hp motor.
Or, as a teenager, slalom water skiing behind my Dad’s outboard motorboat.
Such memories made the Port Credit Boat Show even more memorable!
I know that Scoop had her own childhood memories, different from mine, but just as memorable!
