Summer 2008 only comes once

Taking Blackball Ferry from Port Angeles, WA. to Victoria, BC.

Decided to head back toward central city of Vancouver for one more sightseeing day.

Picture taken at downtown public library.

My ride in from Abbotsford was good along shoulder of Fraser Highway. Better than going east on north side of Fraser River where there was construction and so forth. North side gets better farther east past Mission, as I remember from an earlier trip.

South side of river is OK as much of the traffic "rat race" can use Trans Canada Highway rather than Fraser Highway.

More highway choices on south side of river.

I was thinking of coming back to Bellingham a day early, but missed my turn south to the border at Aldergrove. Also thought one more day in Canada would be fun. Motel in Surrey and Skytrain back to downtown Vancouver.

I had another dream that encouraged me to continue my trip. Dream was about stopping into my place of work and discovering I was needed back at work earlier than expected. Our vacation fill-in help must have miss read the calendar in my dream. They left earlier than planned.

While my boss was trying to explain this to me, several other people were talking to him all at once. He was also trying to serve whole wheat bread from a vendor's cart in the lobby. Doing this while running all over the building troubleshooting maintenance things. People were lining up at the cart waiting for their bread while he was needed upstairs to fix pluming problems. His skin looked mighty wrinkled.

I'm glad that was just a dream and when I do go back to work, it shouldn't be that hectic; hopefully.
