Ferries have always been, by far, my favorite mode of transportation.
(Although, apart from that time in Tijuana, I’ve never ridden a zebra. That might win) The view, the wind blowing in my face as I play the Titanic song on my iPod, the gift shop.
This morning, I had to go into Vancouver to pick up a new modem for the office. I live on the Sunshine Coast, which is only accessible by ferry. (There’s an ongoing debate, as you would expect, about building a road in down from Squamish.) So! Because I live on an almost-island, I got to take the ferry! Who gets to take a ferry to get to work! (Apart from Derek on Grey’s anatomy…)
This is the first time in a long time that I’ve loved where I live (Pretty much since I lived in Quito) Every day, I look out at the view, and I think “As if I get to live here” All I want is for you all to come visit so you can see this amazing place I get to call home. Seriously – I have a pull out couch. Come on over! You’ll get to take a ferry!
