BC Ferries

Long ferry wait

August 9th, 2018 — People at the Nanaimo ferry terminal were out of their cars looking anxiously towards the loading ramp and hoping a few more cars would get on the 3:30pm sailing from Departure Bay to Vancouver. A few did but not the people in the picture who had to wait in the 30 degree afternoon heat for the next sailing.

Salish Eagle

Salish Eagle July 31st, 2017 — An out of order elevator on the new BC Ferry, Salish Eagle. I kind of assumed this was just one of those typical glitches that new ships have when first put into service. There is now a reliable report, however, from a one time main stream journalist that on August 1st this ship hadn’t one single functioning elevator and that seniors with week knees were unable to climb the steep stairs to the lounge and had to stay on the car deck. Another ferry fiasco on the horizon?

Violinist on the ferry

violinist-on-ferry-boat November 18th, 2016 — He played on the upper deck of the Queen of Coquitlam all the way from Nanaimo to Horseshoe Bay on today’s 3pm sailing. He’s not Joshua Bell but he is very good. No one who went up onto the windy cold deck didn’t stop and listen for at least a little while. I didn’t get a chance to ask who, what, why, but the story I like to imagine is that he was returning from Gabriola Island having just bought a new bow from ex Edmonton Journal photographer now bow maker extraordinaire Mike Vann and couldn’t wait to try it out on his way home.
