Mon 16th May
Up bright and early this morning. Not too many regrets leaving the hostel in Vancouver. It is in the middle of a refurbishment and as a result showers and toilets were in short supply. The new open plan style will take some getting used to for us reserved Brits.
Bob was shy and wouldn’t drop his trousers for the photo shoot!
Waiting for the Ferry
The ferry over to Vancouver Island took about an hour and a half, from there we rode down to Victoria for a look around. It was much bigger than we thought it would be so didn’t hang around for long.
On the way back up the Island we stopped to take in the view and got chatting to a guy who lives in Prince Rupert. We said we were thinking of taking a ferry to Hyder in Alaska but he says riding it is so much better with some fantastic roads incl about 60 kms of gravel tracks, so depending on the weather we’ll probably try that route
Stopped for the night in Parkville.
