        ... Saturday afternoon. I could have easily spent hundreds of dollars on handmade housewares, accessories, and food, all locally made. Restraining myself was not easy. I walked around the harbour, listened to some live music, and watched a derby-style race with boats made out of cardboard, duct tape, and what seemed to be garbage bags.
