We waited over an hour for the ferry at 3.15pm not knowing the sailing times in advance and unwittingly arrived too early.

Of course at moments like this curious locals tend to wander over and want to know where we are from, all about the car, why we are doing it etc so one has to be polite and not brush ...
... with downhill and nordic trails. The big mt I have been admiring is Hudson Bay Mt. Between the fur trade, lumbering and canneries, BC was a hopping place last century.
