Islands Bound…

wp-1474827643763.jpgHello friends! It’s time for another bike adventure!

This evening, Sunday September 25, I will board Amtrak and head north to Seattle. After spending the night, I’ll hop on the ferry (Victoria Clipper) and head to Vancouver Island! I’ll be spending a day in Victoria, then do a loop on the SE part of the island. After that, I’ll be doing some island hopping (Salt Spring, San Juan, Lopez) before I hit the “mainland”, albeit Fidalgo Island. From there I ride south through Whidbey Island, hop another ferry to Port Townsend, and wind my way back to Seattle, where I’ll spend the night (Tuesday October 4). I’ll then take a train home to Portland on the eve of Wednesday October 5. Whew!

It should be lots of fun! I love heading up to the islands, and this will be my most extensive trip there in years. Also, it’s the first time I’ve been back to Victoria/Vancouver Island since 2009, which is quite a while. I really wish I could get two full weeks to do this rather than a week plus, because the getting to the islands basically suck out a day of travel on either end. I’d really like to get to explore Vancouver Island more and hit Tofino, the true “west coast” of Canada. But that takes a long time to get there! So right now I’ll just have to be satisfied with lots of ferry rides, beaches, blue water, and trees. šŸ™‚ (And some hills.)

I’ll try to post from the road, but the best way to see what’s going on is by checking out either my Instagram, tumblr, or flickr feeds.

  1. Have fun! You certainly got a good jump off day here in the Emerald city with a 75 degree blue sky day Monday the 26th. I envy your trip to the Canadian islands, I need to get my passport renewed so they will allow me across the border. Tailwinds and Clear skies sir!

I love to hear from you!
