Here's a plot of class size by year (I got bored waiting for my wife to return from the farmers market with dutch letters). Looks like a banner year.

Didn't find any lists for 2009 or earlier.

Sbwitte... I'm looking across Boundary Pass to Orcas Island as I am typing this. I am on one of the Canadian islands. It's a beautiful morning, and the start of a long weekend for us Canadians.

Sea Kayaker, thank you. We're really looking forward to living there someday. We're planning on a vacation there this summer. However we can't even stay in our own house because it is rented full time. The things we all have to give up to be able to retire early.... 😃

Salt Spring perhaps?
Had a friend that used to own a small cottage there.

That is certainly a beautiful part of the world. Victoria is one of the most beautiful cities I've ever visited.

I was there just a short while ago. Stayed in eastsound for a few days. Adore the place and the people.

Also tried to find a certain lady there I met last year, but that didn't go well

I did a 4 hour circumnavigation of my little Gulf Island this past weekend. Had a nice view of Orcas and its neighbouring islands. That island in the distance more or less in line with the bow of my kayak is Orcas BTW. Iphone camera makes it look farther away than it looks - I could probably paddle there in just over an hour.

My wife and I are going on holidays soon - upon my return to work I will give notice. I am giving notice July 15, with the intention of being done with the company on Sept. 15. I have a feeling they are not going to see 2 months notice as enough. It will be an interesting conversation. There are many who will be blindsided by this.

I gave 2 months notice.....and they didn't think that was enough. We compromised on 4 months, which ended up being pretty tough to achieve. Good luck!
