Posts Tagged ‘“ferry crossing”’

It’s over! The trip is done. When this is published, we will be on our way home although perhaps not in the SKY yet.

We crossed the SEA by ferry from the island back to Vancouver on Friday evening and snapped the following photos. Since then, we have been done with sightseeing, preferring to hang with the kids — go for brunch, talk, play cards.

While there may be an addendum or two once we get home, this post pretty well concludes the blog for now. I think that it will be some time before another major trip is scribed here, but there may be some minor excursions to report on from time to time.

Thanks for coming along on the journey,

AC and Cuppa

We are quite a distance from Vancouver tonight. This morning we drove to Horseshoe Bay and took the ferry to Nanaimo on Vancouver Island. From there we drove about four hours to Tofino. For the first day since we’ve been here, the sun came out and more or less stayed out although we worried over it a few times. Hey, we’ll appreciate what we get because it’s supposed to rain from tomorrow onward. We took many pictures, but I’ll go with these six for now. The first two are taken from the ferry.

One reason we’re here was because the tour book raved about the drive to Tofino. It wasn’t too far off the mark because it was quite a wonderful drive. One problem we seem to have with BC, however, is the relative scarcity of viewpoints — places where we can pull off the road and drink in the scenery. Hence, Cuppa took many pictures from the moving car as we travelled along, but these two are from actual stops that we made.

Finally, we arrive in Tofino and secured a nice but not too pricey motel (relatively speaking — it is a tourist town after all!) with a view of the harbour on Clayoquot Sound. Nice eh? The ocean, mountains, flowers and even palm trees. Yes, there are two small palm trees in the motel garden that you can’t see in this photo. There really are palm trees in Canada; there were a few by English Bay in Vancouver as well.

Then we walked around the town and took this picture of the Tofino harbour.

If it rains tomorrow, there are countless shops where Cuppa can browse. What the heck! It was nice today, and we enjoyed it, so we can take more rain. Sure we can.
