" The Ringleader"
August 5th and 6th
After securing "The Ringleader" to the Port of Comox dock Capt. Terry talks with the Harbormaster ( Called Wharffinger), about the power situation, running of generator, and about local Happenings. The Wharffinger explains that it is a national holiday and Comox is having it's Nautical days, music dancing in the port park, pancake feed with car show and parade tomorrow.
Capt. Terry returns to "The Ringleader", relates his information to the owner who is sitting on the aft deck reading and visiting with other dockside boaters. She says she is fine and Capt is free to explore shore based activities.
Hearing this he goes ashore to find the band playing old fashion rock and roll and the locals dancing their socks off. He too joins in and shakes a leg both of them.
The next day he goes to the pancake feed, the car show, but misses the parade because the owner is anxious to leave Comox and go to the next port, that being Campbell River 33 nautical miles north of Campbell River.
