The lines are being drawn in Snug Cove. In more ways that one.



Hot on the heels of the Snug Cove community planning process being finalized (more on that later and elsewhere, but especially here) comes the painting of new lane markers on the Bowen Island Trunk Road leading on to the ferry.



This is all part of a new ferry marshalling experiment which has people ranging from positive to confused to outraged but generally willing to give it a chance.



I was in the cove this morning watching the lines getting marked out and painted. The experiment, which is the initiative of one councillor, is to last six months. My own little jury is out until I see how it works, but I can't help thinking that the Cove will look a lot more like a parking lot and a lot less like a village in the mornings and on summer weekends.
