Being good planners that we are (**cough**cough**), Dale made reservations for the ferry crossing to Vancouver Island out of Tsawwassen. They were offering a discount if we took a later ferry, so we signed up.
When we arrived in Tsawwassen, we found a huge mall there and parked to wait for the 5:45 ferry time. We ate lunch in their food court and walked through the mall. I’m sure we got in our 10,000 steps.
When we arrived at the ferry terminal, we paid our $197 Canadian and got in lane 24 as instructed. As we waited, the other lanes filled up. Thankfully, we were put on the ferry quickly.
If you have ever been on a ferry you know they put almost every kind of vehicle on that boat. When I see all these 18 wheelers I gulp. Will this boat hold up all this weight! It did! 🙂
I showed you the roof of this side of the ferry because when we got off the ferry and to Costco in Nanaimo, there were white dots all over the car and down the back of the motor home. Yep, bird poop! They must hitched a ride.

Even after our being stopped at the border, we enjoyed Tsawwassen and the ferry ride. Highway 19 was a virtual freeway and we arrived at our destination by 8 p.m.
Life is good. God is a light in the darkness.
