Sometimes it’s good to step back from what’s happening,

take a little break,

and breath different air…

The past week has been a bit of an emotional roller coaster ride

so an evening in our nation’s capital was a welcome reprieve

First a couple of pints and lunch at one of our favourite pubs

D’Arcy McGee’s

…Then exchanging flip flops for pretty shoes

….Jeans and tea shirts for Black Tie

The occasion:

Tenth Annual Biennial Employer Support Awards Ceremony

in recognition of companies across the country

for their support of Military Reserve personnel

hosted by

The Canadian Forces Liaison Council



Held at the Canadian War Museum’s LeBreton Gallery



For a while we forgot about boat problems

and just enjoyed the festive atmosphere


But looking out our hotel window

we still couldn’t help imagining being on the water someday soon
