Meeting of the minds

I was stumbling around an old town looking at the sights trying to find all the stuff people normally wouldn't find. I lived in port Townsend Washington years ago and was really into the boat culture. This was not port Townsend however. It reminded me a lot of pt though. I was going through little allies down by the water after touring some old houses when I saw a bearded gentleman with an old whitish sweater with holes in it. He was tending to a big carport like area cleaning and picking up. When I approached him I realized it was a familiar face from pt. He was an old shipwright He recognized me and asked me how I found them? I just said fate brought me here. He invited me into his boat shop 90 degrees to the right and up a little flight of stairs. He was working on a beautiful double ended sailboat about 46' with a little pilot house. He had several more sailboats about his shop. I loved being back in that environment. He took me over to an old photo on the wall and pointed out. See that boat against the wall behind those others? It was my old boat Timshel! You could see the aft end of her. He was rebuilding her in the 80's in his shop. Upon talking a bit he let me know that George and his wife lived right up those stairs at the end of his shop. He said they should be home shortly if I wanted to go up and wait for them. I went up the stairs that opened to a beautiful couple rooms with an open concept. Everything was from all around the world. There were a bunch of carved accents that George had done all around his house. I went up the stairs to their bedroom. The whole place was lit with bright skylights. The hand rails at the top were carved with elephants and intricate designs. I waited there for just a little while when I heard foot steps. I looked over the rail to the stairway outside the shop when I saw George's wife looking for me. I called out for her and she turned. I ran down the stairs and was greeted with a great big hug. It was nice to see these faces. She took me back into the boat shop and off to a side door. It was the house of my friend Nat and his wife. The ladies were making some amazing food. Her kitchen was like nothing you have ever seen. It was lit up with natural light really brightly. Above all the base cabinets were not more cabinets but rather wood shelves at the back with large mixing bowels sitting in holes of the shelves. They were all tilted towards the center of the kitchen with various herbs and other edible plants growing in them. Nats wife welcomed me and quickly pointed me to a bowl full of ingredients in front of me that would need to be stirred if I were going to stay for dinner. The guys would all be home soon and we needed to get this feast prepared. Some of the greatest boat builders I have ever met would be here soon. What conversations we would I have I thought as I unpackaged some of the ingredients and began to mix what looked like an herb packed dressing I was making. Here I was in an amazing kitchen with some beautiful ladies preparing a beautiful all natural meal. What sights all three of these ladies have seen from touring all over the globe with their husbands. They were all seasoned adventurers. I was about to feast with some of the greatest minds I have ever known. Some of the most skilled builders and artists that I had ever met. What good company I am in! Then I woke up :(
(Side note: I woke up after this and started day dreaming after writing this down. I layed there for another hour working out boat design and rigging ideas for the boats I have been dreaming of building. My mind was so active racing like crazy filled with ideas I had not contemplated before. I couldn't shut it off. Many ideas came without effort. It would seem that I did have that meeting with these guys! Even though I woke up before they got home their inspiration still found me. )
