We only had enough time for one night in Nanaimo - time was running out. So Tuesday morning Sandy and Harlow drove us around Nanaimo before we left for the ferry. We set sail on the Queen of Cowichan - this time for Horseshoe Bay (Vancouver). Another grey day.
This is the ferry beside ours - it's one of the new ones - ours was older.
We hopped on the highway through West then North Vancouver - aiming for my long time friend Judy's place. She and son Sean were home. We got there in time for dinner and a great visit. Her home was undergoing a renovation project and Joe really enjoyed chatting with their contractor, Klaus.
Pam's condo complex is near this little pond. It was much nicer when I was there in the spring, but I mistakenly deleted the pix I took of it then, so here it is in the fall. The ducks were still there, though!
From here we cruised in to Calgary - another fun road trip over. It was a bit tight to fit everything in - but we did it. Always too much to do and see in too little time.
Hope you enjoyed checking out the pix maybe you'll be inspired to make a similar trip sometime.
