Pitch And Roll On May Long Weekend


The ferry ride from Victoria, British Columbia, Canada to Port Angeles, Washington, United States was rougher than usual.  It was very windy and quite chilly when we left and once we got out of the harbor into the open water, the waves made for a rocky ride.

We were tossed from side to side for quite a while, with people darting back and forth as they zig-zagged through the boat.  I was worried that the items in our truck parked below deck were being strewn about, but when we got back to it, everything was still in place.

We hit land around 9:00 in the evening - the crossing is only an hour and a half - so we didn't have to endure the roll for too long.

I'm disappointed we didn't get to stay longer this visit and enjoy the May Long Weekend festivities that are planned in honor of Queen Victoria.  We're missing a parade!

To my Canadian Friends - Happy Victoria Day!
