I made it to Victoria, Canada this morning on the Port Angeles Ferry. I’m at the “Sounds Like Coffee” coffee shop in downtown Victoria. They said they had no Wi-Fi here but I found 5 hot spots sitting out here so I am stealing someones.
As I was parking my bike, a bunch of middle-aged women on a smoke break started whistling at me and my bike while I was parking. I tend to wonder if there was more than tobacco in their cigarettes.
I spent last night camping in the Olympic Natl. Park. I had a quite beautiful campsite with a fire. No I didn’t burn my tent up. Rough night sleeping though. I don’t know if is because of my new pad or something else but it was quite uncomfortable. Usually I am pretty comfortable with my gear while camping. I’m hoping it is a one time thing.
I met another F650GS rider last night named Doug. He came over with a bottle of wine, apologizing for not having any cold beer. It was quite nice of him. We sat and talked bikes and travel for a while and actually got a little tipsy.
This morning I met two more sets of bikers before I got on the ferry. One was from BC, so he gave me some tips on where to go.
It is chilly still and fog hasn’t burned off yet so I don’t know how my ride will be today. I plan to ride to Millbay and Maple Bay about Noon then find a campsite.
My phone is being turned off because of the OUTRAGEOUS rates that ATT has to call from Canada. Probably for the best.
I haven’t taken many pictures, but once I do, I will post some. North I go!!!
