Friends, Fans and Family of Stanley Burke! It's Stanley Day!

February 8th. Stanley Burke's birthday! He is 92 years young today. As I reached for the phone to call him on Amherst Island, I glanced out my window and was delighted by the sight of a rainbow hanging in the air, right off my balcony by Stanley Park. Clearly this is Da's birthday rainbow. I was excited to share it with him and he sounded ebullient on the phone, and loved my version of "Ode to Joy"played on the piano (mixed in with Charlie Brown.)

Miles of smiles...
Here's to a  remarkable human. We are so lucky he's still with us. We can still laugh together, still share the experience of life together.

He and Peggie will soon travel around the horn on a cruise ship and up the coast of Brazil,
for their next adventure.

Thanks for your comments. All are welcome.

Happy Birthday Stanley. I have so many fond memories our our challenges during the building of Sea Village. It was good fun. Happy sailing around The Horn. From Susie Youle in Nanaimo

Hi Stanley,
I have a wonderful photo of you at Habitat '76 in Vancouver. If you have any memories of that event, I'd love to chat about them with you for my upcoming history of that event! My email can be found at
Thanks! Great blog.
