Langley Mystery Weekend

We had a great time drawing and chatting with people in Langley on Mystery Weekend. What a bunch of characters, both actors and real life ones. Tanya and Howie were the first we encountered. Being off the boat from Plotsylvania, they spoke to us in broken English as best they could. Sue and I planted ourselves in front of Mike's Place on the porch. There was a constant flux of people sitting and resting so we were fixed there. The whole day was very fun. Later we headed to Prima Bistro a few doors down for a glass of wine and a little more sketching. The potatoes and cheese apps were heaven!

Tanya and Howie, a couple of teens. She was lamenting her future arranged marriage.

Monty Green (Mac) was a 49er. I don't think he did it. Just too nice of a guy.

James the Paramedic. A real life character there for the fun. He was dressed in full biker leathers so when we saw him coming down the street we jumped on the chance and asked him to sit.

The next victim, Doug Kirk, sat down at his own peril. Another real life character. Doug is proprietor of Kirk's Nursery here on the south end of the island. A great nursery.

Michael Sheehan. He was singing great tunes from Pink Floyd and Al Stewart for us at Prima Bistro.

The Prima Bartender.
