Love My Job!
A few times each summer I’m hired to make a weekend trip to the San Juan’s to entertain boating rendezvous attendees. Boaters are invited by the manufacturer to bring their own boats or yachts to Roche Harbor for a weekend getaway. During their stay, they tie up to the dock and spend days and nights socializing with friends while learning a thing or two about boat care and maintenance. One thing that makes the trip so exciting for me is traveling by seaplane via Kenmore Air out of Lake Union in Seattle, WA.
The trips are always memorable, and the crowds are fun to entertain. The spectacular scenery motivated me to create a Vlog of my most recent trip. Check out the video, and you’ll get an idea of what the San Juan Islands and Roche Harbor offer!
Thursday evening kicked off with a social hour in the Bocce Ball gardens. More than 200 guests enjoyed food, wine, and close-up magic by Yours Truly. I attempted to record some video clips, but unfortunately, the excitement caused me to hit the wrong button! Sadly, no footage was captured.
Friday’s festivities began with a cocktail hour on the dock, where I entertained the guests with more close-up magic. The crowd then made their way to the beach to enjoy dinner, a raffle, and a show. Approximately 450 boaters packed into a large tent on the beach for dinner, drinks, and my stage magic show. My performance went off without a hitch!
These trips to the San Juan Islands are another example of what I love about my profession as a Seattle area magician. The places I see and the people I meet are what makes this job so rewarding. I look forward to many returns to the San Juan’s and numerous other destinations for years to come.
