Back in the USA- Captain on a big boat delivery, rest of gang, road trip home!

It’s been a long time away from home and it has been an adventure. After more than 3 months, we now have entered the US again. US – Canada – Bermuda – Canada – US. We were literally the last Van they squeezed into the Ferry from Victoria to Port Angeles. I was so happy, as it is quite a journey having a kid, a dog and a Van full of stuff along and having to go through the custom process with all. Not making the Ferry would have meant having to leave the car inside the inspection area and to wait 4 1/2 hours for the next. Gosh, was I happy, when that worked out. Make reservations, if you can!

At the end of the day, we found an RV Park right along Highway 101. Artic RV Park, very friendly owners. But being right next to the Freeway didn’t make it for a restful night. The place was cute though.

Why is it only the 3 of us? The Captain had to fly to Hawaii to sail a 62 foot Gunboat back to Seattle. Hopefully we have some news about that soon!

 

Pender Island, Canada

Pender Island is one of the Gulf Islands in Canada. With a long Trailer and a Van we made it onto a Ferry and were even invited to check out the bridge from the captain of the Ferry. After an interesting ride we managed to get a beautiful camping spot with Beach access, Pool and Pub. Picturous ankered boats to look at right from our private campsite.

We also checked out Otter Bay, which is a very well maintained Marina, Cabins and a Pool, with lots of funny signs up with hints, what you are not allowed to do.

Than lastly the so called “Magic Lake” turned out to be with a funny line up of people who wanted to take a dip in this Lake full of Seaweed. We happily went back to our Campsite and stayed put. Couldn’t get any better than that.
