Jun. 26 | The real meaning of religious festivals ...

Every year there is a huge Sikh festival in Squamish that, as far as I understand, commemorates the martyrdom of the fifth guru. Despite my lack of Sikh religious knowledge, but given my keen power of observation, I can only assume it is a siginifcant holy day.

What I do know ... the Sikh community sets up all these tents and tables, and they give out a LOT of free orange food ...

Summary: Yeah, yeah, been out of touch for awhile, so I'm just skipping ahead to week 8 with full details. But if you are really that desperate to find out what I got during weeks 1-7 of the 2010 Squamish Garage Sailing Season, don't get your knickers in a knot, I remembered to take pictures of my weekly wares.

Okay, so today was a nice, sunny day, and the driveway stashes were ripe for the picking.

So, want to hear something totally awesome? My podunk hippie little British Columbian town, which apparently boasts a 15 per cent Francophone population, had a big St-Jean Baptiste celebration for the first time ever this year. They closed down the main downtown street, and there were local French musicians and vendors, and Québecois cuisine, and of course a beer garden.

Summary: Opening Week of the 2010 Garage Sailing
