The busy harbor

Victorial arrival

There is always a lot of activity around Victoria’s Inner Harbour. As we arrived by ferry late last month two tugs were coming in with us as a helicopter took to the sky. Looking south you can see a cargo ship on the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Olympic Mountains in Washington State. It’s a 90 minute ferry ride from Port Angeles to Victoria, B.C. and an enjoyable day trip.

  1. Around the big cities there is always something happening in the harbour. In my travels to New Brunswick I discovered small fishing villages where nothing was happening. They are so quiet and a lot time you don’t see any people. You just have to be there at the right time when the fishing boats are going out.

  2. A ferry ride up there must be fun. Having the mountains as a backdrop to all of the industrial activity makes it an odd mix of pastoral and busy.
