The people you meet . . .

It's nice to meet different people in different parts of the country. I was chatting with a craft brewwer from Smithers, BC at the Great Canadian Beer Festival Friday and snapped a couple of photos. I asked his name. He said Mark Gillis. I was surprised to meet another Gillis. Sure enough his family is from the east coast. His dad is Gerald Gillis and his grandfather was Hugh Gillis, who used to run some sort of taxi service and was the first fire chief in Sydney,where they're all from.
The beer fest is fun and a bit crazy and lots of people had plenty of fun including this cute couple, Nolene and Neil. I don't know anyone else in the other photos but they were among the crowd seriously enjoying the unique taste of craft beers.
