Journey There



What is 5 in the morning?  There's a five in morning?  Damn it's cold!

On Knight

We had to be at the Massey Tunnel bike shuttle by 9 am and we were in a long way away in Burnaby.  Shortly after sunrise we started cyling down the Adanac Bike route - hilly but light in traffic.  30 minutes later we turned onto Clark - a heavy thoroughfare and cycled for the Knight Street bridge.  The picture below is Jesse at the top of the hill just before the Knight Street bridge.

At Massey Tunnel

We were at the Massey Tunnel with minutes to spare - the van showed up on time and we got our free ride though the tunnel.  The shuttle runs every two hours so we had to make this shuttle to make our 1:30 sailing from Victoria.

At Ladner

Once we were in Delta (flatland) we really flew.  We cycled as a pack past Ladner to the Point Roberts turnoff and stopped in for some much needed jet fuel at the McDonalds.  Having not had caffeine in the last two months that coke with breakfast had me wired.

At Terminal

As cyclists we bypass the main gates (shown below) and cycle up to the passenger building.  They never did check that we had tickets though...

Waiting For Ferry

And wait.  We were half an hour an hour early so we hung out under the shadow of a loading ramp.

In Ferry

Ferry trip to Victoria - how many times have we done this trip!  This was the third trip to Vancouver Island in the last four weeks (and many of us would go again the following weekend for Eric's going away party).  On deck we unload first, followed by the large buses next to us.

Mark Killing Time

We had an hour and a half layover in Victoria - just hanging out.  Mark, having woken up as early as I, got back some much needed sleep.

Go to At Camp.
