For Relaxing times…

Don’t Choose Ferry Times!!!

Especially not on Friday nights. Why?

3 Sailing Wait.
A long row of automobiles just chillin’ on the Pat Bay highway for 3 hours. So anti-chill.

This guy almost tipped the scale back to chill momentarily.

A beacon of hope? Nope. Another 1.5 hour wait. So sweet.

I am unimpressed by this and the increased summer fare. $65! Rubbish.

As I began to lose it a little and set-off look for an escape route out of the over-flow parking lot, I notice a beautiful rainbow glowing in the dark sky.

I feel inspired by this natural wonder and feel a calm washing over me. I watch the sunset behind the trees and take a picture of this lovely blue fence.

Ahh, isn’t this so lovely. Oh, feel a few drops of rain! Nothing this BC girl can’t handle. Oh wow, the rain is really coming down. Where is my car? Row 47 or 37 or crap… Torrential downpour… crap.

Finally get on 9pm ferry (which was late) and CBA to leave the car so stayed inside watching Extras Season 2 on DVD until Powerbook and Macbook batteries died… listened to ipods until batteries died… then started amusing myself with taking long exposure “ghosty” shots of me walking past a large semi.

Total travel time between Victoria and Vancouver via BC Ferries = 7 Hours.

    Sounds bad. I’ve taken the ferry a few times, but never with a car.

    Maybe you should do the same to relieve some stress. All your batteries died? Now that sucks.
