Homeward Bound on the Ferry!

After a memorable week or sun, rain, sand, surf, wind and whales we were homeward bound.  We caught the ferry at the Nanaimo terminal.  The weather was perfect for a ferry ride - much different than the rain and gale-force winds we experienced on the way to the Island.  We spent a lot of time up on the deck enjoying the view.... well - most of us did.  Hannah spent most of the time in the gift shop doing what Hannah does best -  reading a complete novel.  

We were like two ships passing in the night.... literally.

While Hannah was crouched in a corner of the gift shop reading War and Peace, the rest of us were up top.  Mike and I were gazing out at sea and Ellie and Sasha were getting exuberant running around the top of the ferry, an announcement came on the loudspeaker reminding all children that running is not allowed on deck.  I guess they were talking to someone else's kids.

Ellie and Sasha switched gears to a dance-off instead.

When is the last time you were able to shake what your momma gave you on the upper deck of a ferry?

Before we knew it, we were in our van waiting to drive off towards home.  
Holidays are always over too quickly, aren't they?
