The Five Ferry Tour

P8030576When we awoke in the tent on the first morning of our 12-day bicyling trip, Tom listened to the radio a little and heard that the Keystone ferry was not running. Cancelled until further notice due to a mechanical problem. And we had planned to be on it in a couple hours.

We did a morning hike instead, finally heading over Deception Pass bridge and on south, arriving at the ferry 5ish. And found it was running just fine.

All of our other ferries on the tour departed as scheduled, and no problem.P8130681 We ferried across international waters to get to and from Vancouver Island. We had a two-ferry day to get from Vancouver Island to Lopez Island. And we got quick at tying down our bikes on the car deck and scampering up the stairs to watch from the passenger areas.
