Heading northwest is always a pleasure.
This time I had not only the widow seat, but the middle seat and
the aisle seat! Bob had the same on the other side - a first for us I think.
The 5:30 am flight from Charlotte to Seattle was about half full. After all,
how many other fools were like us wanting to get up and be at the airport
at such an ungodly hour!
Neither of us slept really, just those brief 15 minute naps between
servings of water, coffee or tea, and more water.
Crossing the Grand Teton National Park.
Stunning Mt. Rainier - 14,410'
Arriving over Seattle, Washington - Space Needle just visible on far right.
Driving to Port Angeles, Washington - pleasant overnight with views of
Hurricane Ridge (Olympic National Park) and a delicious fresh halibut dinner
Early morning 1.5 hour ferry crossing to Victoria, BC, Canada.
Looking back towards Washington State as we arrived in Canada - snow
on the stunning Olympic Mountains.
The cruise port was busy with several ships arriving and leaving.
Welcome to Victoria - British Columbia Parliament Buildings
Weather has been mixed - cloudy with light showers and then some sunny periods
making it comfortably warm - perfect for walking about and enjoying this lovely city.
This is my third visit here and I've loved it every time.
