Day 6: The short road home
Not too much to report today on the short trip home to complete the adventure. Headed out of Hope about 7:45 a.m. and booted it up the trans-Canada for the ferry. Traffic was light until Chilliwack with a brief slow-down for a semi that had gone off the road in a spectacular way a few kms west of Chilliwack. Stopped at the Whatcom turn-off to grab a cup of tea at Timmy’s and headed out again. Got to the ferry terminal shortly after 10 – in plenty of time to make the 11:00 ferry. Docking in Victoria at 12:30, I took my opportunity to avoid the snarl of stupidity we call traffic from the ferry into Victoria and immediately turned off to Wain Road, looking forward to the nice ride down West Saanich Road. Alas, the riding gods were angry and I ended up behind 2 tour buses that had beat me off the ferry. What a buzz kill. Eventually got home though, cases are unpacked, laundry underway. Daydreaming about next time . . . .
