|Father planted me a birth tree, a Douglas fir (Pseudotsuga menziesii), in the front yard of our converted bunkhouse on Neva Road. It is still standing to this day at over 60 feet tall.|
There are not too many photographs of me smiling. I was usually a serious child.
|In summer 1965, we moved to March Road in Honeymoon Bay, a few houses from what is now the Gordon Bay Provincial Park gate. We moved to Duncan in April 1966, by which time I had a brother, Felix Hayo Scharnberg, and a sister, Anya Maureen Scharnberg.|
