West Vancouver's Sidonio family was
in Phuket on the 26th of December, the day of the Tsunami.
They probably would have been washed away on the beach if
they hadn't changed their plans and decided to go on an elephant
ride instead. After returning to their hotel,
and seeing the destruction, they changed their plans again,
this time to stay behind and assist with the clean-up. Their
story and more were the topic of a special wine an cheese
fundraiser last week at the Bellevue Wine Co. Our thoughts
are with those who suffered such a great loss.
