Me and Pui Ming on deck
The ferry ride was, and is all it's cracked up to be! There's something about sliding past those islands and bays and houses and wondering who lives there, has traveled there, explored there. It's some of my favourite country. Victoria was a unique challenge, as the assemblage of the trio, the drive to the ferry, and then to Victoria; finding the hall, more driving around, is really beginning to take it's toll on me! It's harder than I thought it would be..... But it's great to see family and friends, and then to shut it and them all out, and to focus our energies to just play. And we did! I was a little apprehensive with so much uninitiated family there, but their reactions were all more than just polite! Some really enjoyed it I think. Whew. The concert was tightly structured again, as far and number of pieces, and the body pieces were again popular. The house was small, but supportive. The room was bright sounding and the piano loud, so that created some balance challenges for me, although I think things came off the stage once we had people in the room.
Now we are staring the end of this tour in the face. Tonight at Western Front will be our final concert. The end of a longish road. We're heading through Active Pass, I'm heading outside!
