We just spent a couple of days away from home visiting family in the Vancouver area. Leaving home means a 40 minute ferry ride for us the reach Vancouver. The ferry travels 10.5 nautical miles (12 land miles or 19.5 km) between the docks at Langdale (our side) and Horseshoe Bay (Vancouver). The scenery is beautiful with small islands, mountain views and beautiful skies. Over the next couple of days I’ll share some photos of our visit.
About to depart. Looking towards our destination.
Strange weather with rain showers and sunshine combining to make interesting patterns on the mountain backdrop.
