Who knew ScooterBob would be enjoying maritime adventures? :-)
The inside of the ferry was nice enough, but it was such a pretty day, I couldn't sit inside the whole time. There was no life preserver for ScooterBob, so he stayed in the cabin.

It would have been nicer to be going on a two-wheeled adventure on one of these roads...
But, since that wasn't an option, I just walked around town with ScooterBob in tow.
The ferry arrived in Victoria around 11:00, and Dar wasn't going to be free until about 3:30 or so. Since it was a pretty day, I decided exploring the city park would be a good option.

I talked about meeting Dar in a previous post, but decided to share this pic again.
|Dar, ScooterBob, and me, enjoying happy hour.|
I did look, and there they were on the shore. Dar was waving, and waving, and waving. I was on the back of the boat waving, too.
Dar snapped this selfie while she waited for the ferry to pass.

I really, really enjoy sunsets, and I don't get to see them often. At least not clear, full-sky views like that seen from the back of the ferry as it motored toward Seattle.
I showed ScooterBob around a bit today, too. I'll share those pics in the next post, which will very likely be written from Virginia. We fly back east tomorrow morning.
It's been a wonderful visit, but I'm excited about showing ScooterBob some of my favorite sights around Virginia.
