TRAVEL DESTINATION

Where do you Find the Best

Ice Cream?

By | Catherine Dook

W

e had sailed around the Gulf Islands for a couple of
weeks, dropping the hook wherever we wanted,
and then lying there for days so relaxed as to be in
an altered state of consciousness. John called it euphoria, but I
called it a 'coma.' Whichever it was, we had a wonderful time.
Our two solar panels, shiny with the brilliant sunshine of
July, kept our refrigerator running so well (at least during the
day) that I was able to keep artisan bread dough chilled, half-adozen Mars Bars hard, and a litre of milk safe for human consumption until we poured the last of it into our coffee and had
to open a can of Carnation Evaporated Milk. Dinners were leftovers at first, then canned chilli, then canned soup, and finally
pancakes - once I'd assessed the harm factor of night-time room
temperature on my two remaining eggs. Lest anyone feel pity for
my husband, be aware that he was born in England, a land not
famous for its cooking. I could never have married, say, a
Frenchman or an Italian. Actually, considering my culinary ability, I may have been restricted to only this one, undiscriminating
man. Fortunately, I think my husband's accent is cute.
"Honey," I said, "Would you like a treat?" We were at anchor
in Genoa Bay.
"Do we have any Mars Bars left?" he asked.
"It's hot," I said. "I was thinking more of ice cream."
"We don't have any ice cream," he replied. "Our freezer is too
small, and besides, it melts every night."
"I bet Ben, wharfanger and muffin man, sells ice cream. He
sells everything else in his store at the marina."

Yves at Udder Guys gourmet ice cream at Cowichan Bay.

"Oh, all right," John said. "Are you going to row?"
We'd left Cowichan Bay without an outboard because our
outboard repair man, Tony, had selfishly taken time to haul his
own vessel and paint the bottom. This wouldn't have been a
problem, except we own an inflatable Zodiac dinghy with
windage from hell, and every afternoon a convection wind blows
straight into Genoa Bay.
We climbed into the dinghy and I rowed and rowed; I arrived
gasping at the marina and crawled onto the dock, nose down
and hind end elevated.
"Ice cream," I said. My voice was determined.
Ben, wharfanger and muffin man, did not disappoint me.
