Letters: Heartwarming

Reader is pleased with reading Elida Peer's columns

It tickled my heart to read Elida Peers article on the Princess Maquinna and the Norah.

I travelled with my mother and sister on her from Port Alberni to Winter Harbour in the mid-1940s to visit with my father, another West Coast sea Captain.

We ran into a storm and my little sister got seasick and when dinnertime came the steward arrived at our stateroom to escort me to the beautiful dining room.

I kept up correspondence with him until he passed away.

There is a former crew member of these ships living in Brentwood Bay.  He has built models to scale and you can often see him sailing them on the model pond at the Saanich Fair.

I was so happy to have your paper brought to me.
