BMSC Christmas party

Windy ride

By  Nicole Webster

Yesterday was the BMSC Christmas party. It was a wonderful event, held in the gorgeously decorated Rix: Christmas trees, floating candles, and lights! We especially loved the lanterns in the branches.

For some, the open bar was probably their favorite part, but I’m more of a food person, and  the potluck appetizers and desserts were a joy! I had Geo-duck Dip (a first!), sweet potato chips, baked brie, crackers and cheese, I would have been happy at that but I had to save room for the fancy buffet set out by the kitchen.

After a tasty turkey dinner (my favorite part being the spinach-pecan salad). There were some speeches, some sass, thanks given, and a lovely farewell to Erica from PubEd who is off to discover the ‘joys’ of Grad school at Dalhousie. Then I got to dig in to the dessert table and found out that whoopie pie is.

Despite some promises of crazy-ness (Looking at you Caroline), the worst thing was a broken glass (that I know of) which broke up the dance floor which had just maxed to a rocking seven for a brief moment.

The year is certainly winding down here, with only 1 week left before the vast majority of BMSC empties out, it was nice to have a chance to chat with everyone briefly before the last mad push to get everything done, and to assure everyone that I’ll be around again next year. Feeling a little sad and nostalgic, I think I need more punishing dreary rain to remind me why I want to go home.

  1. I wish I could have been there! Everyone looks so festive. Have a great final week there–my favorite time of year in Bamfield (from my limited experience so far) was late fall. The station grew quiet; there was frost on the grass and the leaves on the way in to the lab; and the few people left savored hot tea as rain pattered on the cafeteria skylights.
