Vancouver Island

_J8A9091_BD

I Stayed overnight in Langley so my choice was the Tsawwassen to Swartzs Bay with BC Ferries. Tsawassen is located southwest of Vancouver and far easier to reach than the Horseshoe bay ferries north of Vancouver. The morning traffic jam on the high way one around Vancouver is considerable so it was best to avoid Horseshoe bay. I did also want to see Victoria the former Capital of British Columbia!

This National historic site is well worth a visit even if you are staying in Vancouver downtown area about 50 km away.
