Vancouver to Victoria via Ferry
A beautiful ride on the ferry from Vancouver to Victoria.
The day started out cloudy and rainy but as we headed west to Victoria the sun came out and glinted off the water.
Ferry to Victoria
The ferry took us from Vancouver through the Strait of Georgia to Vancouver Island and Schwartz Bay. From there we traveled by car to Victoria. We arrived at the ferry early enough to board the eleven o’clock ferry instead of the twelve which we had reservations on. Good luck? It turned out we weren’t sure. A fire alarm went off. There was no fire but the crew needed to fix the electronic panel before we could leave. As it turned out forty minutes were spent waiting at the docks before we could leave. Still we reached Shwartz Bay on Vancouver Island well ahead of the next ferry.
The scenery was breathtaking. On the islands we saw many homes and sailboats in the water. We reached Victoria and found our hotel. Fisherman’s warf is just below the window of our room and the sunset while not spectacular was pretty.
The beginning of the day to the end of the day in Victoria.

But Ravyn is willing to do most anything to keep the duchess from discovering the lie.
