The Coho Ferry, run by the Blackball Corporation, here in Victoria, BC, heading out across the Strait of Juan de Fuca towards Port Angeles – a small town at the tip of Washington State. We are blessed with this view every day here on the west coast.
(I do have to say I have taken this ship on several occasions …and almost always have suffered dreadfully from seasickness!!! Think it’s the style of the ship and the rough seas. Have also taken it and been entertained by a wonderful choir that took over the vessel making it a most enjoyable trip.)

Please view LARGE.

    Dramatic backdrop – this brings back memories. I’ve been on that ferry many years ago. I brought an econoline van in Vancouver and travelled down the West Coast to Mexico in it. This is how we got in to America. Thanks Wendi for bringing back some old almost forgotten memories
    :-)

  • Didn’t realize you’d been up in these parts, Paul…. Pleased it shook up the memory cells!! :) Cheers!
