1 Day 1 World Project – 1:00 – 2:00 am

Having our place on the island means we have to make the most of long weekends. Long weekends not only make for tons of traffic, but also packed ferries. Traffic we can deal with ( even though it is annoying ), but if we don’t get on a ferry because they are full we are out of luck.

We decided to aim for first ferry of the morning, the 6 am boat. Driving the 1100+ km once my husband finished work on Friday made for a drive late into the night.

Our late night driving is filled with gas station stops, plus stops for coffee and smoothies. We alternate drivers so that no one is tired, and have a steady stream of music playing.

It is an ordeal at times, but we do get the bonus of driving through the metro Vancouver area with hardly any traffic.
We were also second car in line for getting on the ferry allowing us to be on our island by 9:00 am.

Of course after that we needed a nap.

  1. A nap at your Island home is a great reward. 🙂 I like the early morning ferries too, who wants to wait in line for hours if you can avoid it. 🙂

  3. waiting for ferries is a nightmare, the only times it happens for me is when they are cancelled in winter due to bad weather, this reminds me of my drives from north west Scotland to south east England, I did it alone so had to have some nap stops but always aimed to be across London before 7a.m. I hope you’ve had a great weekend, Frances

      Driving in the UK is such an ordeal at any time. I remember driving from Wallasey to Skye and it felt like forever.

      The weather is wonderful out here at the moment. Just tiled the tub and I’m off to the recycle depot …… doesn’t sound exciting but it is at island pace which is nice.
