If you're currently on Vancouver Island you'll be impressed that we made it off this snowy island Sunday. It involved checking in at YYJ 6 hours early, watching all the flights gradually cancel as the sunny day turned snow white, retrieving our luggage from Air Canada so as to take a stab at getting on the ferry, a much-longer-than-expected car ride from a senior Air Canada crew member (thanks Sue!) almost but not quite to the Swartz Bay ferry, the Pat Bay highway having become a parking lot, a one-km trudge down the highway in a blizzard carrying luggage and dressed for southeast Asia, walking past hundreds of ferry passengers newly arrived from Tsawwassen and waiting for rides that couldn't get through the snow, a 90-minute ferry ride from Swartz Bay to Tsawwassen, a bus ride through deserted snow-covered lower mainland streets to YVR, and then, finally, into the air and onto our journey. Whew.
