Car returned to Hertz . . . . . .. Ferry to Victoria

Enroute to Seattle Another Lovely Sunny Day: We visited the Boeing Factory but no Cameras or cell phones allowed. Amazing spot to visit; IMG_2649 IMG_2646 IMG_2641 IMG_2640 IMG_2636 IMG_2635 IMG_2632 IMG_2631 IMG_2630 IMG_2628 IMG_2599 IMG_2598 IMG_2597 We boarded the Victoria Clipper. A Norwegian Catamaran Ferry with a speed of 35 Knots. IMG_2655 IMG_2654 IMG_2653 Hence the Nickname  “The Rooster” Bobby caught me in a Yawn . . . . .. IMG_2651 IMG_2652 We reached Victoria to a COLD day with SNOW bbbbbrrrrrr  Minus 4 degrees. Never the less we headed to visit Gold Stream Park  To see the RainForest and the salmon run as well as the Eagles ( Not the Band) IMG_2662

Thousands of Salmon do not make it all the way to lay their eggs during Spawning season. The Gulls are Happy.

How Big is that Tree Bobby??

:My DD Stehanie asked if Bobby would like to meet a friend of hers from Peterhead. So of we went to the home of Ruby (Baird) and Bill.

Incredibly Bobby and Ruby attended the same school, and Bob knows her brother well and his children and grandchildren a SMALL world indeed. Or as the expression of the day goes  “”AWESOME””

After a great visit Sasha and I took Bob to see the world’s tallest Totem carved from a single Tree:
