Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear LEAH (we may be good at some things here at Little Gull, but singing is not one of them and I’m definitely no exception)! Always a trooper, Leah spends her birthday each year prepping for May long weekend chaos in one way or another. But there’s always time for cupcakes at coffee break! If you’d like to help her celebrate her birthday, she would be very grateful if you could save any corks you have collected to help out her Dragon Boat team.
We were all waiting with bated breath to see what Premiere Ford’s announcement yesterday would hold. We are happy to let you know that beginning on Saturday morning, marinas are allowed to re-open at their discretion. Over the past two weeks, our number one priority has been to find a way of following all protocols to keep our staff healthy, while getting boats ready for the season. In light of this, we have decided to remain closed to customers through this long weekend and until further notice. We know this may not be the news you would like to read, but one of our concerns is that if any one of us becomes unwell, we must shut down again for at least 2 weeks. That is certainly not a path we want to go down, and therefore we feel that it is the best decision for the entire crew here, and we hope for all of you, so that we can continue to work towards getting all of the boats launched without falling any further behind than we already are due to the previous mandated shutdown.
For those of you venturing up this weekend, public boat launches will also be open tomorrow for recreational use! This is by far the strangest Victoria Day weekend prep and season kick off we have experienced. We sincerely hope that things will continue to settle and everyone will soon be able to enjoy cottage season to the fullest! We look forward to seeing you all soon and appreciate your understanding as we navigate these uncharted waters.
Enjoy the long weekend, beware the blackflies (yep they’re here) and we will see you soon!
