Unexpectedly we were able to buzz out to the island (Pender Island, BC, Canada) for a slightly extended long weekend. Due to the short time constraints it meant we drove out (and back) at slightly different times of day and were on our way to the ferry literally at the crack of dawn.
These images are taken on the Trans Canada Highway “just” before the 6:00 am cutoff. The scenery is in the stretch between Hope and Bridal Veil Falls in British Columbia (Canada).
We witnessed day break over the mountains as we sped towards the ferry. A quick detour was made for Tim Horton’s breakfast sandwiches and to fill the car with gas. We always fill with gas before Abbotsford, the last of the decent (kind of) priced gas; last time we checked, gas on our island was $1.65 per litre (crippling!).
These images were also taken on one of the last days before my lens ceased to work for a SECOND time…….. a story for another day………..but let’s just say there will be mostly wide angle shots in the blog in the near future (I might be forced to rethink camera gear soon! Possibly the only shopping I enjoy………and hardware stores.).
