But just for Saturday, the weather gods relented and gave us a glorious sunny day. I crossed to Victoria and came back at night under clear skies. It started to rain as I hiked across the terminal parking lot to find my car, back in Tsawwassen.
I even found a few clean spots on the ferry windows:
|Halfway across the Strait of Georgia, dodging islands. I grew up with a view like this just outside my bedroom window, a ways further north. I miss it.|
|A mini-island, or spit, depending on the tide. Mostly rock and hardy, scratchy trees.|
|Zooming in on that islet. The thick Pexiglass windows of the ferry serve as a filter, making this seem more like a painting than a photo.|
|Just outside the Schwartz Bay terminal, on Vancouver Island.|
