The Japanese Gardens Paddle

There was a lot of activity last night. Something going on. In the early evening we noticed a huge yacht parked in the cove next to our camp ground. I think a royal prince or something was there. I took a picture. See how that one guy is covering his face? He isn't saluting, that is the wrong hand. I feel like a paparazzi. I had better fuzz their faces.
|Turns out the picture isn't good enough to need to fuzz the faces. But that guy in the white shirt is definitely royalty.|
|The Ferries at Night. Are Big and Bright. Deep in the Heart, of BC.|
|There is evidently a plague wiping these guys out down in CA.|
|OK, I made up the Kami Bell thing|
|But it sounded good, didn't it?|
|OK, I made up the bamboo thing|
Anyway, the cars come off, drive up the hill toward us, and then just about every one of them takes this little turn-around loop and comes right back down and drives onto the larger ferry on the right (which I guess isn't our Ferry after all). Then the small ferry leaves. It gets out a few hundred yards, turns around, comes back and unloads cars from the other end. Not sure if that was a planned and standard manuvuer or not. Then both ferries leave. My partner and I joined up with a bunch of other OOPS people headed home and walked up to the little outdoor cafe to score some coffee. Then I hear a whistle and around the corner comes (what will turn out to be) our ferry. It chugs and opens its huge bow doors and in we all roll.
And off we went. We did remember to return our borrowed Pillows.
