Well, we made it over to Vancouver Island. The ferry ride was uneventful. It was cloudy and cool that day. We drove to our condo in Parksville. It was pretty nice, right on the ocean. We drove north that afternoon and looked around. The next day we drove to Tofino on the west side of the island. It was a long drive, but worth it.
On Sunday, we drove towards Victoria. We made a stop in Sooke so I could go on a zip line. Well it wasn't just one zip line , but 7 zip lines all the way down this huge hill! The longest was 1000 feet. The rest varied from 200 to 600 feet. Sometimes we were about 175 feet up in the air! It was pretty scary. There were some kids on my tour and they were going upside down and backwards. I was content to just look straight ahead and scream my head off.
After that hair raising experience, we headed to our room in Victoria. Its called the Across The Harbour B&B. What a beautiful place. The room was excellent. The hosts were very friendly and helped us get around Victoria.
Today we take the ferry back to the good old U.S.A. We leave at 3:00PM. We are going to head souheast and stop by MT. Rainier Park and Mount St. Helens Park.

Just as we got to the end of the ride, the horse decided to go for a run with us still in the carriage. It was kind of scary, but fun.
