Today we caught the ferry from Port Angeles, WA to Victoria, BC. We had made a reservation and I am glad we did. There are only three crossings a day and a lot of people had to wait until the next ferry. The trip was pretty uneventful although out in the middle of the Strait of Juan de Fuca the ship rolled a lot.
Since it was too early to check into our B & B, we followed a sign which read, “Centre of the Universe, 1500 m” with an arrow pointing to the right. Well, how can you pass up a sign like that? Especially since I know we are visiting another center of the universe in Idaho. Unfortunately this particular Center of the Universe is closed on Mondays. So we only have a picture of what we know is the real center of our universe.
We checked into our inn, the Gazebo Bed and Breakfast. It is run by a very nice Canadian/British couple who were very helpful with things to do, places to go and where to eat. The room is very nice and the gardens around the house are lovely. The downside is that the internet connection is functioning only occasionally which is strange. John hacked into their system but couldn’t figure out what was wrong. Ergo, this post and the ones to follow are being written from Vancouver.
