|On board a BC Ferries ship to Victoria, Vancouver Island.|
|It's always a treat to ply the waters of Georgia Straight and Active Pass on the way to Victoria.|

|Lovely sign at the entrance to Sidney.|
|Jeanette captured this photo of Darcey with her four legged pal.|
She owns a company called CommuniCanine. CommuniCanine Home PageAlthough ours was a brief visit, it is always fun to catch up with her and to get a drift of her busy life. She's always on the go.
|Although not in the forecast, the sun did shine.|
|We took this photo of the Provincial Parliament Buildings on our return walk from dinner at the famed Sticky Wicket Pub and Restaurant.|
Rick & Paulette's RV Travels to let them know of our travel plans and to ask about possibly getting together for coffee or lunch. We agreed to meet at their home on Friday last. It was nice to meet again - this time on their home turf in the Cobble Hill area - following our last get together at their RV site at the Sands RV and Golf Resort in Desert Hot Springs, CA., last February.
|We knew that Rick and Paulette heard us arrive in their driveway when the mutzos were let out the door and greeted us with barks, jumping and general doggy excitement. (More about our visit in the next blog)|

Following a late breakfast, we prepared for the next leg of our island journey northward. We had also planned to meet and overnight with another of our RV friends who travel in a lovely Travel Supreme, Class 'A' and who call Lanzville, BC, (just north of the city of Nanaimo) their brick and sticks home.
|Hector is shadowed by his other best friend, Chico - a wonderful Portuguese Water Dog.|
Most dog owners we know share the same stories about their dogs forever shadowing them wherever they go. That must be why they are known as 'man's best friend.'
|Jeanette and Diane are looking closely at the wine bottle tuxedo that Diane's mom sewed some years back. Kind of cute looking, and what a nice touch to covering a Naked Grape bottle of wine.|
|Hector and Diane prepared a wonderful salmon and Atlantic cod Bar-B-Q|
