A painfully shy Englishman named Charlie takes a room at Betty Meeks’ Fishing Lodge and pretends he can’t speak a word of English to avoid his pathological fear of social interactions. This new role as “foreigner” makes him the unwitting confidante for the
other residents and visitors when Charlie overhears more than he is meant to – with hilarious results! Charlie finds himself in predicaments that are sidesplittingly funny, but which also give us food for thought, as they remind us that our all-too-human foibles, follies, and frailties can make us endearing as well as initiate inspiring personal transformations.
Spruce up your wardrobe this winter by accessorizing with sea glass – also known as “mermaid tears”! Create your own sea glass necklace, bracelet, earrings, or other one-of-a-kind jewelry at the Maritime Museum of British Columbia (Victoria, BC). Using locally sourced material, our workshop leader will guide you through the process, connecting each piece to stories and histories of local areas around Vancouver Island.
