Leaving Victoria and Heading Towards Whistler
We caught the ferry this morning out of Victoria and headed back to Vancouver, which was about 45 minutes from hotel to ferry, then and hour and a half on the ferry to Vancouver, then about another half hour at least to leave out of the city. Once out of the city we hit the beautiful Sea To Sky Highway which is very nice.
Stopped at the Britannia Mine Museum as well. I thought it would be a great place for Gerry to see having worked in the mine and FOR the mine. Britannia Mine was an old copper mine and mill, shut down in the 70's. While there we got to go on an underground tour in a man carrier, and see the mill, as well as pan for gold- which really is time consuming looking for bits of rocks. Plus I give up EASY! It was informative.. enjoyed our time there.
After we left there we headed up the highway a bit to see Shannon Falls, @ Shannon Falls Provincial Park. You can just park and walk in a little ways to the falls. No entrance fee. This water fall is the 3rd largest in B.C..
Seemed to use most of our day today getting from point A to B...so no more news for today... just an early night in tonight.
