My dad took another group of people out in his boat on Tuesday evening, including me, John and John's sister, brother-in-law, and niece. It was a great trip, the water was a lot calmer and I had taken a sufficient amount of drugs so I did not get seasick at all. I even managed to catch three fish! Sadly, I don't have any pictures of this or of the whales we got to see as I was too busy enjoying it all to go for my phone. Which isn't a bad thing. As one of my favourite professors use to say, "You can't experience everything through a lens. Sometimes you have to let your memories be the souvenir".

I think everyone had a good time but I was a bit anxious since this was my first time meeting John's sister & her family and there were strangers on the boat so I felt hyper aware of everything I did and everything I said. You know, that over-analyzing feeling of 'Oh God, does everyone think I'm an idiot?' when in reality no one is really thinking of you at all. Probably.

After the boat trip John and I decided to take his sister & her family out to dinner, with the goal of going to a local place. Of course, since it was Tuesday we thought this would be easy but we didn't realize the George Street Festival (a.k.a a big several day long drinking festival) was still on the go. So everywhere was either packed and/or not letting minors into the restaurant after 7/8pm...which neither John nor I realized was a thing restaurants in the downtown area even practiced because we and most of our friends don't have kids. It was a bit disheartening and we felt a bit embarrassed for dragging his sister & family downtown but it all worked out in the end. We took them to Milestones, which is a chain but not a restaurant they had been to before and we got in easily.

I made his niece two crocheted octopuses like the ones pictured here except they were pink, white and purple. She loved them and they kept her entertained during dinner so I felt pretty good about that too. All in all, a good Tuesday.
