Mayne Island

The ferry ride from Victoria to Vancouver is very beautiful and passes by several islands en route.  The ferry passes between Mayne Island and Galiano Islands and then Pender and Saltspring Islands.  So lovely.  As a ferry leaves Victoria, one also leaves Vancouver in the opposite direction and they pass one another as one moves through the islands.  Impressive.  And close!!!  Pods of orcas move through here as well and if one is lucky.......



This pic is of the lighthouse on Mayne Island, messed about with in Photoshop.  I have spent the week trying to understand and then create my own custom brushes. I may have accidentally erased my brain.  Apparently Control-Z should bring it back.  Or maybe just some more zzzzz's!  Lots of things to try!

I'll be back.

  1. I remember so well that lovely ferry ride. I took it regularly when I lived in Duncan over 40 years ago, and it was a pleasure in all seasons. And it's funny the memories you've triggered for me, among them the best ever clam chowder in the cafeteria ... Delicious! Don't tell me it's long since been phased out!
