When we arrived at the Dock Cafe for this week’s dock walk (see the earlier report on that ministry here) on Sunday, we were surprised by the sight of thousands of people enjoying the partly sunny afternoon on the quayside, where something of a carnival was going on. Maybe as many as ten tall ships were in dock, and visitors were going aboard to explore, others were taking to tour boats in the harbor to get different perspectives, dozens of booths were offering wares and edibles, and performers were putting on free shows. Dock Church rector Chris Bennett suspended this week’s prayer walk in favor of making the cafe available to fairgoers, and after my photojournalism stint I joined other regular dock walkers as volunteer cafe workers, bussing and washing the hundreds of cups and other dishes and cleaning up for the next patrons after a previous batch moved on.
