Sunday Favorites time over at Chari's at Happy to Design. Stop in and say hey. She always has the best stuff going on over there.
This post was from last summer. June I think. It was a great time.
depending on whether or not the dining room is open), the sometimes half day lineups, the expense and the crowds. On the way over I didn't even take any pictures because it was a gray, rainy day. On the way home we did get to appreciate the touristy side of the trip because it was a beautiful day.
Image via WikipediaWe had made a reservation, for a fee, to get on the 4:00 sailing back to the mainland. This saved us from perhaps missing a sailing and having to wait for the next one. It is a 2 1/2 hour ride so it does get quite late before you get home.This wasn't the ideal situation because it meant we had to cut our lunch and visit with my mother in law short to get to the boat by 3:30 check in for reservations. We had wanted a later sailing but they were already reserved. Remember this was the first Friday since school let out and we have a national holiday coming up on July 1 in Canada. The scenery is spectacular for sure. We sat outside for most of the trip but a jacket was necessary for me. The sun was warm but the wind out on the open ocean is really strong and cold. The pleasure boats were out everywhere and the float planes were landing at the waterfront home all along the way. Now that would be a fabulous commute home from work wouldn't it? Note: the photos of the whale was not taken by me. It is from wikepedia. This is one of the best whale watching areas in the world and it is not unusual to see these magnificent animals on you ferry crossing. I didn't want you to miss out on them.
