 What happens in Tahsis stays in Tahsis:


                                                                          “CATCH OF THE DAY!”

 The rain was pouring down on this May day in Tahsis. Standing in front of a big puddle in Westview Marina & Lodge parking lot, known to the staff, as Lake Cathy, was an old man, drenched, holding a fishing pole and dangling a fishing line into Lake Cathy.

Passer-by headed for the Marina Patio Pub stopped and asked, “What are you doing” “Fishing” – replied the old man.

Feeling sorry for the old man, the gent says, “Come down to the dock and out of this rain we’ll have a drink together”.

In the warmth of the dry patio near one of the deck heaters, as they sipped their Baily’s coffee, the gentleman could not resist asking, “So how many have you caught today?”

Old man says, “You’re the eighth today. Got My limit again”
