Canada Hotel

This 16-day journey began on May 15, 2004. We arrived at the airport much too early. In order to get seat assignments we needed to input endless numbers, including our passport numbers. We located our gate with time to spare and to contemplate our upcoming adventure.

After our two-hour flight to Vancouver, we cleared customs, found our tour representative and boarded the first of many buses. After riding an hour or so, we then boarded a ferry with a 90-minute ride to the island of Victoria. Our dinner on the ferry was enjoyable as we passed many inhabited islands in the distance. All too soon we found ourselves in downtown Victoria.

We met our tour guide and walked the five blocks to the hotel. As we walked along the street on the edge of the harbor, we realized these were terribly long blocks. At one of our rest stops, a fellow riding a cab approached and asked if we would like a ride. We did. We checked into our hotel and rushed to our room. It was the greatest place to end an exceedingly long day.
