Wake up Andrew! See what I see! I pulled beside the ferry dock to study the ships, to watch the cars loading for the Black Ball ferry across to Victoria, BC. The maple leaf flag and the stars and stripes flapped and waved, two countries, friendly like, still vigil-conscious though. After all, someone who plotted to blow up the L. A. airport entered the US right here. Yep, right here at this crossing-spot. Had explosives in his trunk and everything.
Andrew looks around, grunts at me, and flops down onto the backseat pillow.
Hmmph, I think. I reckon this view is mine, all mine.
