WCT Update

A travel blog entry by walterm


... truly scared of heights this is not a trail for you as you are going pretty well straight up and with one slip you would be falling quite a way and encountering a serious injury. I would think there have been people who have fallen off of the ladders, but I didn’t see any blood pools at the bottom so up I trudged until the lactic acid started hitting the legs. Then it is one painful step after another until you reach the platform and can rest before ...

Vancouver Island

A travel blog entry by andyfreshwater


... a one and a half hour bus ride to the port of Tsawwassen. Only to find our 11am sailing had been cancelled due to engine problems. There was another at 12 noon so after putting the world to right with a local lady, we boarded the ferry for our 1 hour 40 minute crossing. As most of you know I'm not the best at sea, it's a bit of a standing joke but seriously I get sea sick on a pedalo! So I headed straight for the outside deck at the top. I don't feel quite so bad if I am ...

... the snow and ice behind and head for Vancouver. Vancouver is grey and overcast with a surprising amount of snow on the ground. We have time to go to duty free and a quick meal at Milestones before getting on the plane for our long journey. Now I can relax we have made our connection with time to spare and are ready to travel on. ...

Day 16 - Sunday On Saltspring

A travel blog entry by wendiandhugh


... While Bill and I puttered around doing various thing that "needed" to get done Wendi had and enjoyable day on the deck overlooking Long Harbour reading her book and working on a new song.

At supper Bill gave us instructions on how to gently steam the crabs over beer ...

    This is a very nice place! The common room and kitchen are great, many windows, lots of light... in this dark winter weather, I appreciate! Very well located, close to the waterfront, into the art district. Cafes, restaurants nearby, as well as a grocery store at about 10 min walk. If I come back to Nanaimo I will stay here again!
